Born of shadows cast from years before
Wrenched from light, peace and love
Born to the pain of breath, touch and thought
Born to a world of fear and anger
Now wrapped in time, I’m ushered along
Older in each hour
On its own, my life passes by
A quilt of joys, sorrows, life and death
In the wane of light I now reflect
Upon the innocence and brashness of youth
Immersed in a search for things unreal
Caught in the tide of human needs
Now, in my ebb, wisdom flows
Waking from its long, deep sleep
With values new, hard lessons learned
Ignorance and vanity erode away
Thoughts now trek back through time
The journey provides a familiar path
Unlike the first, I do not stumble
In reverie I float above the roots
A cycle not yet complete
From blind cocoon to endless flight
Tired wings now seek to rest

From youthful stance to humbled frame
Soon to return to a place I once was
My journey brief, yet long in time
Back to the light that gave me life
Back to where I have always been
