Litanies Against Dying, 17 (199.)

How do mods work, how
does an upgrade become standard?
When does it all get better,
and is consistency really key
to everything endlessly improving?

This is a slow burn.
A long walk in the park, if you will.
Make it a trek to the summit of some place,
and that’s an accurate depiction of life.

Of something. Leaving everything as it is
just ain’t gonna cut it.
Improvements must be made.
Muster as much willpower as you can
and start the journey –
each small step comes closer to perfection,
but that apex is not the point.

Pragmatism sounded so boring when I was younger.
Now, it’s all I want to master.

Standard
