I was born,
Then I cried and in my tears I swam
to an aim I did not know.
I closed my eyes and I saw that I am lost in the desert of life.
I screamed, and in my sadness drowned.
Then I died, although I still take my breath
Very interesting image and words!!! My interpretation of this piece: I feel that this piece is about growing up. As a child we look at the world with innocence and everything is new and wonderful.As we get older we lose that childlike wonder as the heartaches and trials in life take there toll on our innocence.
