A Womb's Virtues

What's womb beauty but an art divine
Where in my soul's graces shine
Sun like animates my being's charms
With a face, form, gesture, voice and a mind

Of a race that was and as such I'm myself
A part of the great cause, fed by some one
Larger than me.Strength matters little,
Speed not at all, no worrying, no plan

Just being there-a childish beauty,
Dream woven, cradled in now-
Of the oncoming awakening in the immortal
Better half side of life, have no knowledge.

    Speaking of virtues, it could refer to both man or woman. And the womb has its virtues- or rather its blessings. Here's what I said about virtue:

    Virtue And The Beast

    To run, we could from threats besetting us
    But naught we do for demons from within
    Their obstacles laid on the paths we pass
    Dictate the rise and fall our lives contain

    Virtue does to a woman bind desire
    When dreams of wayward thrills it would suppress
    As though alarm when hearts are set afire
    It screams out loud should she unzips her dress

    Monsters and ghouls are far removed in woods
    If there be what the heart so truly dreads
    In man is beast lurking in murky moods
    Knows many arms and sleeps in many beds. (Report) Reply

    How true! A pat of a greater cause, n yet in life we live like nothing meaningful exists but ourselves (Report) Reply

    great piece of composition and it makes me forecast the awakening of the doomsday.. the real awakening much more effective than the so called intellectual awakening we undergo in the world... choice of words and arrangenments are remarkable (Report) Reply

    What a beautiful poem. The innocence of a newborn is unlimited but the way you end your poem shows that though a newborn may die, atleast they had the chance to be in 'this' world and that they are now in a better place.

    Some believe that life begins after we are born but that is not true. Our parents, both mother and father, marked the beginning of life but what is life compared to the One who allowed it and placed a soul inside? Great work and continue to spread words of truth around the world =D (Report) Reply
