birth cord

How frail is
our knowing, as we nimbly cross
the rushing stream of thought.
Our hold
on what we value most
is but the accident of circumstance,
a protective disquisition
On life
in lieu of living.
The birth cord
that once connected us
to the very beginning of time,
having been
leaves us to seek an answer on our own.
We are
thus forced to journey inward
to find a truth that belongs to
Each alone
