Digging your grave

Your grave can never be dug deep enough.
You'll keep on digging it forever,
but you'll never reach a bottom.
For that reason many will stop digging,
which they never should,
because that is how they will die.
As long as you continue digging it
you will remain alive at least,
so do not rest, don't wipe your sweat,
don't take a pause, or you will lose your rhythm
and fall out of practice and thereby risk dying.
Enjoy the darkness of your grave and dig it darker,
deeper, ever further down to endlessness;
and the hope and possibility is always there
like lurking in the end,
that you one day might find an exit in the other end.
