It begins to learn that the abyss was not an end, but a genesis. (for @lilimurato’s collab)

-Genesis-

Wilting, drenched in a suffocating coat of ink

Wilting, drenched in a suffocating coat of ink Bowing towards the hard packed soil, taken onto the brink

Wilting, drenched in a suffocating coat of ink Bowing towards the hard packed soil, taken onto the brink Of the world, where breathing is no more than an instinct

Nothing to be cherished, nothing more than a filling of the lungs

Nothing to be cherished, nothing more than a filling of the lungs The stem snaps in half

Nothing to be cherished, nothing more than a filling of the lungs The stem snaps in half, ripping its fragile roots from the ground

Falling, twirling into the abyss of nothingness without making a sound

Falling, twirling into the abyss of nothingness without making a sound Eternity it seems, is more than the flower of life can take

Falling, twirling into the abyss of nothingness without making a sound Eternity it seems, is more than the flower of life can take More than what it wanted, more than it could fake

Yet a large calloused hand scoops up the decaying flower

Yet a large calloused hand scoops up the decaying flower So small and breakable, fading with the hour

Yet a large calloused hand scoops up the decaying flower So small and breakable, fading with the hour It's planted into soft soil, so rich and gorgeously tended

It's malnourished roots slowly picking up the nutrients

It's malnourished roots slowly picking up the nutrients It basks in the sun, so warm, so safe, so sensitive

It's malnourished roots slowly picking up the nutrients It basks in the sun, so warm, so safe, so sensitive It begins to learn that the abyss was not an end, but a genesis

The starting line for a long and sun filled life, for there is no alternative

The starting line for a long and sun filled life, for there is no alternative Once tentative to live, the flower opens in full bloom, soaking up the rays glory

Looking to the sky, where a heaven lays, supporting the flower, for the rest of its days
