A brief poem about life, from birth to death.
A flow of thoughts startle my stagnant mind,
An explosion of ideas wrench me from my dreams,
A wave of being washes over me.
A beam of light blinds my tired eyes,
A flare of utter radiance stops me from falling back,
Utter life begins to flow through me.
A sense of hope flutters, blooms and grows,
Yet a tide, a current, pulls me on, forwards.
A way before my feet, a roof overhead;
A home around me, built of life and death, ages.
A person that smiles, a person that cries, an endless sea.
Brightened by love; the path before me.
A heartbeat, made by millions, felt by one, falters.
A clock, batteries gone old, is still right twice.
Blinded by the path long gone;
