A venture through life
A taste of existence
The realm of reality
Envelops a tiny soul
Created alongside flesh and bone
Ten tiny fingers, ten tiny toes
Moving uncontrollable while bathing in air.
Man-handling, cold hands
Sheathed by rubber gloves
Grasps the cherub like a new-found toy.
So, the journey begins
Of an insignificant life
Among billions of others
Living, learning, loving, dying
Lights flicker on and off
Day and night
The show goes on.
