Patterns in the Rubble

Enslaved to hardwired
Existential motivators,
Programmed not to give up on life.
Urged to seek
Patterns in the rubble
Where there’s none,
Lost in futile
Quests for hidden meaning —
Only to learn at the bitter end
That this was everything,
This was all the time we had,
And we ourselves
Were the ultimate answer
All along.
