Tender infant, Born with innate Temperament and soul. Nursing on what is near. Building bonds And beliefs Formed by blood, And ancestral habits.
Choices are made By will and fate While body and mind grow. Feeding from friend and stranger, An unexpected kind smile Or wise words That leave the mind wondering. Friends warmth Or enemy bitterness In uncontrollable anger. Cruelty and insanity.
Observing the freedom Of a bird's flight, The loyalty from a dog's eyes. Gentleness in the sweet lamb. Elegance and strength Of the noble horse.
Powerful mysterious ocean, Gentle small brook. Spiritual paths In search for truth.
Birth and death, Peace and war. Choices made for us Choices made by us. Penetrating immeasurable Never ending possibilities And changes, sculpting Who we are, forever....
