The Cords Of Life

Awash in this abyss of black solitude,
With no visible presence of being,
Anchored by the cord of life
Inaudible waves of sound penetrate
Virgin eyes unseeing

Drum beat echoes evolve to a resounding thud
Cramped and constricted likened to a snakes prey
A thunder of screams resonate as the water flows
Desolation morphs into destruction now survival must reign
Abetted by thrust and a light to guide the way

I am born.

Nurtured, cocooned, breathe the sterile air,
Handled only by kid gloves,
Mechanical solidarity reiterated
Viewed through kaleidoscope eyes
Enforced Dictatorship or unconditional love?

Emotions ebb, and crest , Tsunami breaks
Swim the turbulent flow
Communication crash, sweet sound of silence
Revel psychological independence
The beacon of knowledge doth glow

I am me.

Empowered decisions set in stone,
Liberated opinions freely told,
Knowledge is the jewel in the crown,
Swiftly move the hands of time,
Flitted youth, a long time old,
Victor of the race now energy com busted,
Redundant regrets of tardy minds,
Final inhalation, eyes hit by a lightning strike,
Crinkled oak with roots uplifted,
Detach the silver cords blind,
Death is not resisted, Deaths language commands, his offer compulsory.

I am free.
