Seeking life.

Seeking life.

A Poem by vspjaguar

Many say that change is the only thing that never changes. Through this poem, I try to say that seeking is the only thing that never changes throughout life which brings forth the changes. :)

A baby is born, sleeps itself into bliss
The baby grows, longs for the love-filled kiss. 
He perceives everything in the world as a toy
and lives in the world full of fantasy and joy.

The child then goes into the world of competition. 
Survival of the fittest is taught, seeds of ambition
are planted. The expectation is to defy the laws
of nature.The Slow and steady are regarded as flaws.

senses hijacked, he thinks himself to be an adult.
His thoughts give birth to lust, making him exult
with the pleasure derived from his body. His mind
Accepts this as the ultimate, making him walk blind.

The poison fades away, child removes his blindfold.
Eyes open only to see the fog of uncertainty to unfold.
The pain of ignorance seeps into every cell of his body.
seeking answers in vain, he asks anybody and everybody.

The pain of ignorance tears this child apart.
Every bit shredded till the child depart. 
The demise of the child brings forth the man.
He realizes that he has a limited life span.

Suddenly, Mortal nature of his comes into existence. 
A thin ray of light, he sees in a far distance.
Follows the light to find the ray of true love.
So many years he could never find it but now.

Through the mother called love, lust is born once again.
It inherits purity which never before it could attain.
Seeking of the man finds expression with this union. 
Thereby making him possess the highest nature of human.

Surprisingly, what has to be ultimate seems penultimate. 
A small thought lingers saying this is not the ultimate. 
A voice from the deep, says the seeking is not over yet.
Pain of ignorance and fire to seek once again is set.

you havent lost your touch. Survival of the fittest is taught, the slow and steady are regarded as flaws. Those lines bares the world's ideology. And then man's endless search for answers. Great work bro

Thanks bro! :)
Depicts life accurately... if only the world replaced ' survival of the fittest' by 'survival together ' , we would be in a better world.

Nice work :)
