That Life Within...




There is a life unfolding where
It has not touched our finger-tips
And yet, in subtle rendering
The shadow of its image slips

This life splays forth in rarest form
Where wisdom and folly collide
As love and lust release their storm
Without the effort of disguise

Upon this battlefield we train
And disentangle from its shield
Those things which will not be constrained
As its true spirit is revealed

There is a life unfolding where
It shapes each deed the hand has wrought
We ought to guard this realm with care
It is the life lived in our thought

  1. How well you have shown the value of life on this earth. There may be another planet having some life forms, but for us our earth is mother, let;s protect it.
