I reached out to the sun, but he burned me
No matter how I approached, I was scorched.
The sun seemed to burn brighter each day for months
I wanted to be close, to feel the warmth
Oh but the scars I earned…
Slashed at every angle
Then there was the moon
I was without her for too long
Loneliness seemed to consume me
Without her, where was I to look for help?
I ran endlessly, trying to find the edge of the world
The rocks tore at my feet, leaving a red trail
My eyes blazed green from the tears
The wind whipped at my cheeks, howling in my ears, mocking me
This place was unfamiliar
I ran into the ocean
Thrown from wave to wave
I saw a new sun on the horizon
Would I reach it?
My body was torn
My lungs were burning
The oxygen was ice
Was there no end to this typhoon?
How many more times could I go under!
Would this pain ever cease?
Now here I stand at the base of a new mountain
With bared teeth and no one around me
Through each trial I will rise
I will reach the edge of the world
