A Break in Journey

Spiralling down into the blue below,

I found a world where life throbbed.

Billion beings danced and swayed,

this break in journey had me awed!


I entered into human realm,

With Baby's glee and parents' joy,

As I walked and lived a life

Learnt my maker's plan and ploy!


The aves had soared, up above

The fishes delved into the deep,

The forest teeming with myriad lives

The unfolding drama had me peep!


Many suns and moons awoke,

New stars twinkled in the darkest womb;

I brought more life with Your consent,

Then You took me to my tomb!


My rest on earth came to an end,

My journey was commenced again.

In that endless void of yours,

Go I must, devoid of joy and pain!
