POEM OF LIFE

by M

Born into innocence

Gasping for breath, I was struggling for life

The mischief creator perhaps mystic

Playing roulette as he dances

The numbers are spinning on and on

Knowing the gravity is forever pulling and pulling

Like the apple falling, all will come to a stop

The chosen ones are given the epileptic trauma of life

This divine test will enrich the soul

The suffocating violence will end in a moment of tranquility

Only the amorous heart and death can ease the pain

Walking past all that is familiar 

My destination is slowly approaching

The wildflowers adorn the path

As I am on my journey of no return

The sun is setting

Today it will be all for me 

All change has come to a stop

The moment stands still

The stench will soon sweeten 

There, the wild flower has purpose, after all

There, I will await you

I will wait for eternity if necessary 

But then eternity is only a moment in time

Time is like a game of roulette

I am spinning on and on

Knowing the gravity is forever pulling and pulling

Until it wrestles no more.
