I Am Life - Poem by Michael Van Der Elst

When I took my first breath, I felt so alive
As I felt my first rain, I felt strength
I looked upon the wonders, I felt fulfilled
The first moving creatures lived and died, and In death they became part of us

As the creatures become many, I feel my breath and strength are not the same
With the passing of time I see that our life is coming to a end
Makes me wonder if they know, I am the tree of life
