The Physics of Immortality

Though I was blind
I dreamt of a light
The glow became bright
My sight purified
But I opened my eyes
And was unsatisfied

Nothing I saw
Nothing I found
So out of my mouth
I sent forth a sound
But the sound became proud
From within and without

I was alone
So I brought you to life
Your heart couldn’t bear it
So I gave you mine
But you didn’t love me
So I lay down to die

Then out in the void
I came to realize
This death was a lie
A deception of mind
So I cast it aside
Forever alive

— the Soil & the Sun
