The abyss is
dark and deep
The abyss is
an endless
downward tunnel
The abyss is
a bottomless pit
The abyss is
a black hole in space
Yet headlong
you and i must
jump into
The abyss and
rise phoenix-like
from the ashes
of despair
from the rock bottom
of our fears and soar
to the upper air
beyond the woof
of space and the warp
of time beyond
the music of
the spheres beyond
the seven planes
of the spirit
and ascend to
the highest heaven
by plunging into
the darkest lowest
depths of hell
