Hadal Zone

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.
