Returned to Dust


We all share the same fate:
we will return
to where we originated.


The ground birthed us
in the beginning of creation,
and so we will
meet with it again.


Two methods exist:
placed six feet under
or disinegrated by flame.


But we end up in the same place...


returned to dust.
