            Any Different

            Work hard, live long, sleep well,
            don't think too much, and remember
            to die quietly when it's your turn to go.
            Accept the standard definitions,
            for resistance is useless.
            Have we not all yearned to be artists
            or martyrs from time to time,
            to wear a face in a faceless crowd.
            Haven’t you learned yet?
            In the dark we are all the same,
            just the same, and all your grieving
            will not make you any different.

In the dark we are all the same

This poem is like throwing down a gauntlet.
