Living Cycle of a Human

Updated on December 16, 2017

Life, an amazing cycle

I am a child

Learning to love while I still breathe

To stand firm by all the things I believe

To say sorry as well as forgive

Learning to learn right so my dreams can be achieved

To wipe my tears after a cry when there's the need

And to rise again after a fall no matter how deep


I am young

As strong as my bones hold

Pigmented black as my hair grows

Thick and red as my blood flows

I'm young and not so wild and free as most folks

Been through a lot of life's lessons but behold,

There's a lot to learn than I already know


I am only human

Smiling for joy and shedding tears of sorrow and pain

Identified by my colour and called by a name

Carefully moulded by God but imperfect I remain

Embracing my faults and accepting blame

Making mistakes to learn but sometimes repeating same

But to live right I will one day proclaim


I will be old

I'll be too frail and hate my age

Unable to do all the things I do in my days

As calm as a new born baby and control my rage

I'll be wiser and probably called a sage

Might earn success and possess all i crave

And my Lord indeed I will forever praise


I will surely die

Will stop breathing as my heart beats desist

Will cease to exist and might be missed

By those who insist to assist on this life journey one can't resist

Be left in solitude six feet beneath the soil

Might be remembered or not for my toils

And even after, my name will be embroiled


I am a child and young but only human, and will one day grow old and die

But death I die but it's not the end.

For then I shall live, and life true would've just begun
