I see, I perceive.
I crawl, I walk, I learn and unlearn,
Magic unfolds the mirth -
And I realize what life is.
Life gives me voice, I speak.
I stammer, I murmur -
Life kisses me, I win.
Pace pulls my arm, I run.
I strive, I bleed, I search for escape;
Life offers its lap -
And I rest in peace.
Life hurts hard, I stoop, I fall.
Life holds my hand, I stand;
I hug it tight, I smile.
Life slaps me again, I shatter -
Death comes for rescue and I utter :
"You are not my escape but life is"
