Upside Down

Upside down.
His head in the ground.
Wishing he could be reborn again.
Seeking for another feel of mother's loving touch.
Engaged in quests that never mattered much.

Hanging from a root and seeking core.
Disregarding all the living flows.
Reaching for an afterglow

Upside down.
Within the ground.
Peace within the coffin that he found...
