The Shell

 

 

A shell lies in the sand

Left behind unwanted 

She used to be filled with life

Now... empty

 

Her living energy

was vibrant colorful

Full to the top overflowing

Always looking for new experience 

 

Together the shell and her life 

went through so much

Many adventures

Visited the bottom of the ocean

Traveled far far away

To the greenest islands on Earth

 

Touched the stars up in the sky

Had a go on the milky way slide

Fell in love on Venus

Went on a date on Mars

Vacationed on the Sun

 

But one day the life went away

A dark and sad day it was

The life was lost

Sucked by the blackest hole

Never returned

 

The shell stayed there behind

Laying on the lifeless ground

In the driest sand where nothing 

grows

Forgotten abandoned 

 

Waiting for the end to come...

Shell sequel

The shell is a hard protective layer created by an animal that lives by the sea.
The animal inside has died and been eaten up by another animal for his tea.

Waiting for the end to come...but the end was happy

The shell was picked up by a sailor from Quebeck,
Who made Anya a necklace out of it to hang round her neck.
