An endless journey filled with twists and turns

With pain and sorrow

With joy and happiness

With defeat and slavery

With victory and liberation.


It starts in the womb

Till the child sees first light

Then decisions starts

What shall we name the child?

What shall the child become?


The child grows up

Stands at the crossroads of life itself

What path do I take?

What road do I walk down?

The right path

I knoweth not

For that knowledge is of higher calling.


A path has been chosen

It is riddled with agony and despair

With poverty and hunger

The once blissful child has lost all hope

He resigns to fate and passes from this world.

But it doesn't end there

After this world

You either go up or down

To unending happiness

Or to unending suffering.


Just next door

A child is born

The decisions start again

How will this tale end?
