Life-A Paradoxical Odyssey

life dawns at birth

with expectations of it being filled with mirth

with a cry,man begins this journey

which is in fact a strange odyssey

he is led into this dark macrocosm

when he is amongst the microcosm

his fight for survival

begins at such a small level

time knoweth no bound in its flight

as each moment flaps in its plight

years pass by with out realization

in pursuit of his ambition

he goes through this peripatetic ride

which is like a twirling tide

once risen the tide should subside

and so does this ride

suddenly everything seems to be over

as the undefeatable foe the death hovers

the life that was lead with such aplomb and agony

fades away into the mist of an unfound country…
