This entity, this ego that is I —
Did it exist before my body’s birth,
And will it then continue when I die
In Heaven above, or back here on this Earth?
While ancient tales and scriptures proclaim Yes,
There is no scientific certainty,
And we are left to speculate and guess,
Perplexed forever by this quandary.
So, for my comfort, I’ll proceed as though
Once this life’s over, there’s another round
And then another, so my soul may grow
Eventually discovering where it’s bound.
My mission now is to explore and find
The furthest reaches of my fervid mind.
