Get Rid Of The Advertisements

'The Cycle of Life'
 
Each day a picture-frame in the celluoid reel of life,
The flickering images of childhood days,
Of youth's impetuosity, in darkness and light,
Like animated shadows of this world in a haze.

Drifting smoke from a raconteur's pipe,
With contemplating anguished looks; childrens soldiers in formation,
Of unicorns and monsters and glaring eyes in fright,
A child's uneasy movements; twisting fingers, nervous moments.

But that smile on a child he must return,
Before the clock strikes ten,
Allowing them the last ride on the unicorn;
That one day will take them, from children to men.

Lives then change from skipping-ropes and Christmas morning toys,
Of childhood dreams, and times when we were boys,
From kiss and chase and holding hands until the early morn,
Starting again the cycle of life, to ride once more; the unicorn.
