The evidence that souls come back to life
And are reincarnated many times,
Though unbelievable to most, is rife,
With testimony gathered from all climes.
This would explain why some who seem so wise
May have the benefit of many lives
In which to learn what they now realize,
Assuming such experience survives.
If true, this means we may in time transcend,
By virtue of increased experience,
Our foolishness, and ignorance may mend,
Which even now seems dauntingly immense.
So, who was I before, I’m urged to ask,
Could I but peer behind my present mask.
