Descent by Fujita Toji

Descent
by Fujita Toji

You are a raindrop.
Life is your fall to Earth.
You are created in a blind cloud,
Then released into the world when the time is right.

In the beginning, you're at the top of your life.
All is well,
But you move down all the time.
You can never go back,
You can only go on.
Occasionally, you pick up dust.
If you're lucky, you might help produce a rainbow.

Continuing in life, you get closer to the bottom.
You might not make it all the way,
Certain obstacles might get in the way,
Ones that you are unable to avoid.
The bottom is death.
You cannot avoid the end.
After death, your body disappears slowly,
But your soul rises up.
