Life From The Matrix


When in the warm matrix I was,
I felt no fear of any hurt.
Then, needily, I jerked outward
Where I first had to learn to crawl
Which must needily be before
I enjoyed to toddle and fall,
And then had the ear-to-ear awe
Of being propped no more as I walked.
And now comes this joy of my pulse
Which races as I jog and run,
And which now I stretch on the clock
In competing on how to jump.
Yes, all these I must learn before
I could wings-up and the sky hug.
