The Next Step
Age Group: Adult
The First step
Silently the spirit stands atop a majestic mountain
Far below a life waiting to be born
A pregnant mother
A fetus awaiting the touch of a soul
A shimmer of breath
It all begins
From mist to form
First step of the journey
Yet the spirit hesitates upon the ridge
For rising up from below
The mired sound of many voices
Words drifting about upon the thermal waves of life
Pushing and shoving
My religion is the way
No, no, this is the one
Wars are fought
Human lives are lost
Souls are spent
Father Time just shudders
A lesson of life ignored
Children we all are
Loved by Deity
Created the same
Dismal anguish self created
Will humans ever learn?
A scourge of the truth
Blindfolded by one’s own hand
Power and ego
Mistakes waiting to be made
The soul a beacon in the night
Yet ignored by a lack of sight
Spirit decides with a sigh
It is time to go
A baby is born
The first step is taken
