A Tragedy

When a seed is ignited, receiving a gift of life
It sprouts from a drop of rain or semens rush
A cycle from birth, to live and die with pride
The purpose, to sustain the reason we’re all alive
Plants and trees of every kind, some tall some underground
Herds that roam on hoofs or those that live alone
Feathered wings that soar, dip and dive
Fins and tails that swim, dart and glide
Comes to wonder, how is this all to be
When man was given a brain to think and see
Can reach within, to a heart with a soul
Yet forgets, we are all part of the whole
Life is a right, created by this planet Earth
From the first seed that began mans birth
Hairless and colourless we are all the same
Man and Woman, born without shame
A destiny, when fate takes a life
A tragedy, when taken in strife
