Things Fall Apart

Things fall apart — this is the final law.
Perfect stability is perfect death.
And stasis cannot bear a single breath.
Fulfillment absolute? The end of all.

Things fall apart — and other beings rise.
The substrate of this crumbling universe
Will grow another one. Stagnation’s worse.
Destruction is creation in disguise.

Things fall apart — choose now your place to stand.
Will you feed evolution with the blood
Of others, or pour yours into the flood,
Or fight the inexorable expand?

With open hands, I witness bear to all — 
Things fall apart — amen, and let them fall.
