This Field Of Life - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

It's like an open journey

you begin to travel

from the moment

your shape and form

were knitted

with umbilical attachment

in a mother's womb

the field of life

begins with the echo

of every heart-beat

every pulsation

like a rhythmic dance

and a preparation

for formative enrichment

with eyes wide open

and senses tuned

to a new world

you continue your itinerary

across the landscape

of earth

of moon

with distances that sometimes

make challenges harmonious

or intimidating

with no scope to hide

or run

there never seems to be

an end

only a beginning

all yesterdays

become today

and all today

roll over tomorrow

making this field of life

a roller-coaster

with endless motion.
