Within the vast expanse above,
You can find some vegetables,
Clothing for the bold and mighty,
And a few figures of highest power.

Within the unstoppable progressing force,
One can expel or discharge from itself,
Notice a small, frowned upon, arachnid,
Or a simple object, needed for something else.

Combine both, and get a defining system for life,
From it, we can get a famous baseball team,
A substance used for binding, or made from meals,
A key, or a door, leading to true freedom,
Properties of surgical tools, or even open wounds,
Leading to a final site, a site of calm and rest,
Onto which some ornaments, embossing, and relief.

    $\begingroup$ This is almost exactly what I have too, except rot13(zl fvzcyr bowrpg vf 'vgrz' naq zl svany fvgr vf 'pnzcfvgr'), considering that particular section seems to be increasing by a letter each time. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It just so happens that Stiv is correct, and considering this, you'd only be missing the final one: "Onto which some ornaments, embossing, and relief." $\endgroup$
