First Line: From out of darkness emerges
Last Line: "while the ""I"" goes out alone."
Subject(s): Mortality


From out of darkness emerges
This shell that is labeled "I",
Totters awhile on an isle of green
Then cold in death must lie.

Unfathomable blackness looms ahead,
A measureless, endless unknown,
And the shell is left by the ebbing tide,
While the "I" goes out alone.
