The Seed Of Life


'To dust men came and to this dust men shall return
A saying in the bible that has spawned like prey
The seed of life that sown by men who never learned
A fortune that must never be squandered away

The desert is barren where water cannot dwell
Where trees grows in despair and miserable gloom
The silent torment that rings like funeral bell
A woman's value is determined from her womb

As birds are free to fly and bees protect their queen
Their duty in life is to keep the breed alive
A crowning achievement to see this wondrous scene
The seed of humanity that men have to strive.'
