Delve into the depths

Let the darkness consume you

Clean you

Become you.

Into the darkness you go,

Grimy and stained,

And when you come back,

You are clean once more.

You have been used,

Sometimes abused,

Some days worn and ragged,

And others fresh and new.

Like a phoenix,

Reborn from its ashes,

You are reborn,

Returning from the dark.

The ritual is repeated.
