Go into the earth

You must.

From flesh to dust.

No more lust.

Go into the soil

You’ve left this mortal coil

Wound so tight around your neck.

You’ve taken it upon yourself,

Some might say.

But it was never a choice

That terrible voice.

Go into the dark my dear

But step into the light

There were always shadows

But in between was bright.

(c) Slumpless
