I wanted to explore zones of irreversible change. Whether in the deep ocean or in life, creatures face moments where they can either “sink or swim.”
Beyond the everlasting night
We sink or swim in endless wait.
Enchanting dark meets flashing light
An echo of our endless fate.
What magic lies beyond the deep?
A drop, a laugh, a future there.
Pure wonder calls us to our sleep
Down to a world beyond compare.
For underneath the writhing mass
A sanctuary lingers on.
The final way through which we pass
To greet our true unbridled dawn.
Don’t weep for us, the fallen here.
The past will joyous disappear.
