Just came to me thinking about Epitaths I suppose.


Into the depths.

Into the depths the dark and unknown
Where fear is an ally, and comrades are known
And deaths a companion that holds out a hand
Taking life in an instant, turning blood into sand

Out of the darkness and into the light
I'll not go that easy I'll put up a fight
To languish in heaven, or wallow in hell
And if I don't make it, then who's going to tell?

Wonderful!!! I loved reading this! It has such an awesome flow. I really liked the last two lines
"To languish in heaven, or wallow in hell
And if I don't make it, then who's going to tell? "
Great write.

An epitath as good as any. Especially liked,
"To languish in heaven, or wallow in hell
And if I don't make it, then who's going to tell?"
