Thoughts in a reflection

But it is where you find it
and no one can doubt it,
I found
at some cost
the life that I had
when I thought it was lost,

but nothing is ever really gone
it just goes on in a different place
where you come face to face
with what you find.

A reaction to the actions of time
against man
and it’s a battle
from that first baby rattle
to
the last death rattle
but it’s still where you find it

sometimes
it’s hidden quite well.
