Stems twist towards light

While the roots scoop life

From darkness

A sage once taught

That expansion is life

Contraction death

Like the universe expanding

We venture out towards growth

Through bright, black and blurred paths

Each step assures us

Of the sweet or bitter fruits

Of knowledge and perceptions

We are wise

Before that eternal slumber

In the cold earth chamber

Or on the fiery pyre bed
