Walking backwards through life

From dark to light

Death comes first makes no sense

The circle begins

Around it goes forever on and on

Not stopping for long

Birth is now a fresh new start

Forever it comes

Death to life or is it life to death

Matters not the way

We traverse the sphere

For the never-ending circle of life

Continues to roll
