Face Of The Soul


Into this world we trudge alone,

Thrown into the pond of life,

As a single stone.

Laden with the weight of all ages,

For which we shall bemoan.

We travel weary to the breast,

Fountain of life, spewed

Nourished with nature’s best.

Weaned into a world unsure,

Where each shall face their test.

Headstone against the wave

Immersed within the pond

Scroll to Continue

Wherein, easier to sink than save.

We shall repent with the remorse

Which our forefathers gave.

We shall suffer their tears,

As we dry our own.

For their sorrow is our life,

Their single hope to atone.

Blessed beside the bounty of grace

Where each reflection is a single face.
