Life (by The Girl from Academics)

And every day he played with crusts on the moon’s surface.

Until one day he fell to a planet named ‘earth’ and at full speed to the ground.

And because of that he was lost and he didn’t know what to do. However, he had to do something.

And so he went and explored all different animals that space didn’t have and vegetation. He decided to become a nomad and see more.

Until finally he met death. Life was really confused because he made things die. After a certain amount of time… Life never understood, for he was 400 years old. Then realised nothing lasts forever.

And ever since he was grateful and made the most out of everything and never took things for granted and enjoyed being. Then Life used his powers for homo-sapiens and left a message carved in their brains before he turned his playdoh into structures that live, for he wanted to leave a great creation for his mother nature.
