Eternal Life

Life is eternity,
and we were born into it.
But fate had other plans.
We were lift to bear it’s scars.
Gasping for air,
clinging to our mother’s breast.
Ripped from the whom,
cold, and screaming.

Our survival depends on our skills,
and our fight to live on.
We are the mortals,
surviving in
the eternal expansion of the universe. 
Unique creatures,
with growing mind’s,
able to understand
by using our intellect.
