Fame

Vindictive, it threatens all;
Vulnerable, we stand alone.
Versatile, swift: its fall;
Indicative of fame’s temporary throne.


Popularity is ephemeral. The faster one rises to the throne, the quicker and painful is the demise. Destiny weaves events into chains of leaders who take turns for the throne. Power is vindictive and addictive, yet use and throw.
The one with fame and power is destined to be overthrown.

    The future is already here. Fame doesn’t last for more than few hours. Attention span is reducing and we are doomed. There is no trust and no due diligence, doom is eternal and eternity is accelerating towards us
