I laid down my life for integrity
Denied, my ashes scattered to rest
‘Til another transitioned was strewn
To mix and mingle in the garden.
“What has you this way come?” She whispered.
“For integrity.” I replied.
“It was benevolence that did me in, my sister.
Surely they go hand in hand. Shall we?” She asked.
As kindred spirits we conspired
Amongst the dirt and roots
Until the flowers devoured our essence
And once again we faced the sun.
