A Season in Hell!
I don't know if reading recently Rimbaud's poetic masterpiece "A Season in Hell" was coincidence or the sign of a sealed faith. Rimbaud's self prophecy about his life has the poet deliberately engaging in a life of debauchary and rebellion against the divinity of the Christ and the Church, and engages in all the vice that loses his soul. He tries to find himself in this personal Garden of Gethsemane, as he loses himself to the dark side of life.
If a man has a good thing, to what extent is one predestined to lose the things that matter in life. It's human nature to be fragile, and to give in to one's own weakness.....but the price of it.....not worth it really!
