The fated or the random events that happens around us,
Catch us off guard.
because of the state of comfort before the fire,
and the assumption of the permanence of that comfortable state.
When that comfort is swept away as it has always been the case,
We throw our hands up in the air in agitation,
Sometimes metaphorically and sometimes literally.
It is all to human to do that, to feel that.
The fact that the world has been on fire in the past as it is now
and most certainly will be again lit,
Does not stop us to keep hoping that it doesn’t;
Such is the Sisyphean condition of human nature.
