Theme: Journey

Womb to Womb

We journey
not from womb to tomb,
but from womb to womb…
Before we arrive
on this earth so lovely and sweet,
mother nurtures us
prepares us in a small world,
seemingly dark, yet that is where
we learn what we shall see,
experience and act
in the big new world!
The new world we step into
is another womb too.
Nature nurtures us
and as mother prepares us
to view another world,
a world of wisdom.

This truth when it dawns upon us
we realize and see the unseen,
we take another birth.
As a tide in sea
we rise and fall,
fall and rise,
or as a sun
at the end of every night we dawn.
Death does not snatch us,
but instead the door to a new world it unlocks!

We journey
not from womb to tomb
but from womb to womb...
