Between Birth And Death

Between birth and death

Lies the place of our struggle

Pain our companion

Yet through all this there is love

Lurking beyond our egos

Unconditional

Many strive to attain It

Though few ever do

Human temptation obstructs

Luring us with its promise

Left to our own wants

This incarnation is doomed

Destined to repeat

Maybe the next time around

We will find the purest love
