THE ETERNAL RETURN
Let’s say then that my essence will survive
And I’ll have many rounds to be alive
Reincarnating for new challenges,
Just as the ancient Hindu teaching says,
Implying that I’ve come to Earth before,
A secret hid behind a mystic door.
So much, then, for the needless dread of death
When I’ll be here to draw another breath
Encased within another mortal form,
Another life that’s palpable and warm
With opportunities to meet with mates
From former lives, then altering our fates.
There’s naught to fear then in this cosmic game
As life by life relights our subtle flame.
