Lord, I have rested. I have watched my cells leak charred fluid and have felt the burden of confronting demons despite my withered state. I understand now that we weren’t meant to overcome mortality but to embrace it. So, I have rested. I have stemmed the flow and have bandaged my soul and am ready.
But what of the world? The affairs of mankind continued but I was left ignored, Lord. Repaired and rested I visit places and see that I am being forgotten and overtaken by a new breed. Yet, they do not understand, Lord.
Darkness falls, which readies me the same way mortals are readied at dawn. Invigorated.
