In Defiance of Entropy

As with the preceding poetry exposition, this is something I wrote for the sheer joy of it, but it does serve to demonstrate the kind of piece I might ghostwrite if commissioned to deliver a reflective or inspirational blog entry, for example.

It’s only a short essay (400 words), but then, it is only intended to convey a single sentiment without particularly deep elaboration. It is also worth adding the caveat that I deliberately prioritised literary integrity over SEO principles when drafting it, and as with ‘Here Comes the Flood’, it was written in my own voice, because there was no reason for me to emulate anyone else’s.
