The point of life is that there is no point.
We find our meaning in that lack of meaning.
Each is therefore free to choose a mission,
Needing something more than mere ambition,
The pursuit of which can often seem redeeming.
Yet some would their uncertainties anoint.

Freedom doesn't disappear with choice.
In being one, one cannot help be free.
Vast the view, and miniscule the voice,
Even as the voice makes meaning be.
