Short Life

Heartbeat--
Life begins.
The Genesis
Of a new person.

Eyes blink--
The child sees.
He tastes the world.
He explores and learns.

Heartbreak--
Bitterness
Innocence lost
The child turns to man.

Heart torn--
Man forgets
The joys of life.
He sinks in shadow.

Heart stops--
One moment
Before Death comes
To see life is short.
