This is the way the world ends not with a bang but a whimper- T.S Eliot

Your pulse quickens

It is the only reason you continue on

That and if you don’t you will fall to your death

You are called a daredevil, an extreme sports man

But really you do it for the rush

The rush of adrenaline

The feeling of immortality

You clime Mt. Everest without a mask

You dive Marianas Trench without air

You do whatever you can to escape the truth

If you stoped

You would be nothing

But if you don’t stop you will die

Not because you did nothing but because you did something

Something stupid or amateurish

For the rush

You lived and died for the rush
