Stages of Life

Stages of Life

A Poem by Seyi Ojenike
"

Birth to death

"
To birth is joy, an overflow of soaring
Happiness.
A new generation,
A beautiful thing.

Hence, from then time races, flies
As it flaps away it's wings.
A fleeing dream is chased,
All for what it brings.

The girl is never burdened by her work,
Awhile she sings.

The dead is wailed over, in hurt and pain
... death stings.

One life, several stages
In between the lines,
Birth to death
For everyone, it's the same thing.
