Marcus Aurelius Vs Machiavelli
What it really comes down to
Two philosophical opposites.
They pull us in different directions
And they make good points.
It’s up for us to decide who had it right.
I can’t help but feel like
The answers lay somewhere between the two men.
But what is really complexing
Is how Marcus did it?
It would be easy to be Machiavelli.
It’d probably be a lot more fun to be him,
But it’d be much more meaningful to be Marcus Ariellus.
But I am not either.
I am me.
And I lay somewhere in between the two men.
Somewhere between Nietzsche and Deskoyeski.
Somewhere between good and evil
They fuck with the mind.
So many philosophers
So much to choose from
It’s overwhelming really.
The more I learn
The angrier I get.
The more perplexed I get.
I’m getting in arguments on the internet with strangers I don't know
About things I don’t really understand.
Marcus would never.
