                       There’s physical and metaphysical:
                       Our mortal bodies and immortal souls
                       Some say, while others say they’re full of bull:
                       Each views things from opposing poles.

                      What evidence is there that we have been
                      Incarnate on this planet previously
                      Except alleged memories that begin
                      In early childhood with felt certainty?

                      If souls have lived before, why should they not
                      Recall those lives with perfect accuracy,
                      Whereas all but few notions are forgot
                      As with most dreams that flee from memory.

                           Reincarnation has a great appeal,
                           Yet it’s more likely fantasy than real.
