THE GAME OF LIFE
Beyond the Veil, what mysteries lie concealed
That by and by will finally be revealed?
For let’s assume, as many have declared:
From ultimate extinction we are spared;
What seems like death to those who still remain
Is merely moving to a higher plane,
Transcending time and space until again
We choose another round as mortal men.
If this be so, then what we are to do,
The sages say, is ardently pursue
Those goals we choose when once again the Veil
Descends and we return to what seems jail.
But think instead that this is all a sport,
The way our spirits frolic and cavort.
