Quintessence

The principles of the quintessential four
Surrounds the inevitable future lore
Untangle the path of a circular cast
The symbiosis of earth, air, water and fire

Soaked by water, a blinding tear
Nothing to see, nothing to flee
Burnt by fire, the future I sear
Everything I’ll see, everything I’ll be

Raised by earth, womb of all origin
Nothing to seed, nothing to breed
Exhaled by air, puzzle of gaseous spinning
Everything I’ll breathe, everything I’ll feed

Midst of the parallax, I mirror the illuminations
Fall, rise and further evolution
Midst of the parallax, the maze of illustrations
Fall, rise and fatal conclusion

Soaked by water, a blinding tear
Nothing to see, nothing to flee
Burnt by fire, the future I sear
Everything I’ll see, everything I’ll be

The principles of the essential four
Strengthen and bond, the core
Tangles the math of a circular cast
The erosion of earth, air, water and fire

Omnifarious – earth
Omnipresence – air
Omnipotence – water
Omnivorous – fire
Ominous for the omniscient

Soaked by water, a blinding tear
Nothing to see, nothing to flee
Burnt by fire, the future I sear
Everything I’ll see, everything I’ll be

Raised by earth, womb of all origin
Nothing to seed, nothing to breed
Exhaled by air, puzzle of gaseous spinning
Everything I’ll breathe, everything I’ll feed
