Womb of the mother
Our creator created
By the creator
Time to be spent
Already timed
Features designed
Destination Destiny
Dated and Autographed
Only edition
Only copy
None before during or after

Moving Forward
Needles of the Clock
Know when to stop
Ticking from Birth
Moving Ahead
Every tick one tick
Less one breath

Needles of the Clock
Moving in Circles
Signifying the Soul
Cought in the cycle
Of Birth and Rebirth

Lack of Symmetry
Not apparent to many
Unique individual
Beginning of the journey
Varies for everybody
End coincides with nobody

Ticket to ride
Train of life
Different stations embarked
Same Train Same Destination
Different Coaches
End Approaches
Automatically disembarked

Limited time
In Time
After time
No time

Paths of journey
Repeated by many
Previous rides valued
Collected and deposited
Driver and Guard
Bound by Duty
Every Passenger
Treated with Objectivity

Varied in Unison
Cause for Confusion
Clarity and Solution
Only in Self Realisation
