The Unfolding

This is life

The burning flame disappears,
slowly as if lingering,
wanting one last embrace;
leaving embers of colours behind
as it fades from view,
surrendering finally
in a continual dance
with its counterpart.

Sparkling, like diamonds
that yearn to shine
in all their glory;
they appear gradually,
until all have been revealed,
lighting the way,
gathering hopes and wishes,
guiding the lost traveller.

As old as the ages,
dependable and secure
they circle endlessly;
like lovers seeking their mate,
longing for each other
yet never meeting,
chasing, until they pass
but never touch.

Time passes
and years roll by
as evolution unravels
in a never-ending cycle
forcing growth,
awakening the consciousness,
removing blinders
and breaking undesirable patterns.

Layer by layer
the path is laid out,
full of choices
meant to shape and form,
lessons to be learned,
loves to be had
and sometimes lost,
leaving imprints behind.

Welcome to life
in all its glory
and all its challenges;
this is the pattern,
from day to night,
year to year,
destiny, anxiously awaiting you
in the unfolding.
