one day

Would you like some color with that?
no, I’d prefer black, as a matter of fact
For, I can see all that surrounds me
is luscious and thriving
but honestly, I’m simply surviving
I’m functioning, and that’s something
and I know, one day, it’s coming
that the iridescence surrounding me
will envelop me to a certain degree
that the aphotic curse
will disperse.
