New being
Brought home by stork
Canvas unmarked so pure
Asks the world to gently unfold
Waiting.

Toddler
Reaching pushing
Trips over new unknowns
Asks the world to remain unchanged
Watching.

Teenage
Listless searching
Bursts out of skin so taut
Asks the world to gather tempo
Wanting.

Mid-life
Collects crises
Gathers notches on belt
Asks the world what it's all about
Waning.

Old age
Reminiscence
Fears loss within and out
Asks the world to remember him
At End.

New being,
Reaching pushing,
Bursts out of skin so taut,
Asks the world what it's all about,
At End?
