Chants of Mortals

Chants of Mortals

From the first cry out of the womb like a bay window
Life presents a combat zone
Though maternal and puny
The soul knew it was an eternal race

Tick-tack, tick-tack the race began
Moments in life unfolds like a lotus 
Laying hold on the peduncle of hope
Each day breeds disquietude

From a child, to the springtime of life, to the withering age
Birth with unbeatable potentials 
A time of unrest and a time of peace 
A time of defeat and a time of victory
Embodies the vulnerabilities of life until the final breath
