First Step

One good thing the body is,
seen in the sea ahead,
a mind shook oil
matured with soil
down the seed coat scraped,
the body passed
when blanket draws to feet.

No one gets through birth the same
without eternity rise,
when that back leg
out from darkness steps to light,
the day, sun, rain and night,
out of darkness steps to light
to vent its flame.
