You're Going Down with Me

You’re Going Down with Me

To understand what illusions

help us to go on living

can undercut their power

to help us go on living.

One must thus be strong

to set out on their discovery.

Beware. Some inform us

about how such and such

is an illusion needed for life

as if themselves unfazed,

and as if doing us a service,

when the truth is darker.

Made sick by such findings

as no one is responsible

ultimately for his behavior,

they are trying to spread

the sickness, trying to take

others down with them.

Do keep hope. Some have

the strength for such findings.

Some have the sense, the care,

not to spread such findings

to just any old ear, even if

they have been made sick.
