Incarnate
Strength of a soul, compassion of heart
Inside of us the moment we start

Embrace of the passage, pushed out from the womb
Clean slate of beginning promises soon

Exposed on the crown, pressure releases
Old knowledge recedes, past memory ceases

Brought into the light, and the cold, drying air
Whether awaits, hope or despair

A slap on the cheek, and a kiss to the babe
A shiny new life, another coming of age

Drama of birth, starts lessons anew
With hope that the learning before will shine through

As chaos unravels and time rolls it free
Feels as though chance masters all destiny

What most don't remember, pieces soon fit
A path chosen at will feeds a knowing spirit

Details are not clear, crossroads not distinct
Core of the challenge had been laid at one's feet

Choices, curved outcomes are part of the plan
Built into the web of the intricate span

Designed with great care for soul-self to sample
Varied lots until final experience ample

Grow to become a guider of guides
Then unite in the endless with ultimate light

this is so vivid. i love it i think it would have impacted me more without the rhyme scheme. sometimes that detracts or deters but the balance and your discriptions are superb!
