Foreordained?

 

I suffer from a malady

And have done since I first drew breath

I know this for a certainty.

The end result will be my death.

 

Why should I let this worry me?

I know that I have died before.

My soul will live eternally.

Each time I die I’m born once more.

 

Each life I must learn something new.

Something I have not learned before.

One life insufficient to

add enough knowledge to my store.

 

I must return again to learn

Each life I have to start anew

To garner credits which I earn

By doing what I have to do.

 

I can’t access my memories.

I start each life with a clean sheet.

And build up knowledge by degrees.

Like other men I must compete.

 

To earn my place and gain respect.

It is entirely up to me.

There is no way I can expect

To earn my merits easily.

 

 

The obstacles I overcome.

Will be recorded faithfully.

Although I score the minimum..

I still progress although slowly.

 

Life is a journey all must make.

Although there is no urgency.

About the speed or road we take.

Because we have eternity.

 

We live we die we are reborn.

Always to different circumstance.

To poverty or else high born.

Each life provides another chance.

 

To move on towards the light.

Where we will know as we are  known.

And gain the power of wingless flight.

Because we are at last full grown.

 

The journey to maturity.

We undertake at our own pace.

We can choose slowly or swiftly.

Until we reach the trysting place.

 

We will return from whence we came.

And become part of the oversoul.

We’ll have succeeded in our aim.

To merge must be our final goal.

wow....this is an awesome piece...
life and death move in circles...and for me the solace is i will have ample opportunities to forever and ever improve myself...in fact all of us...so why be sad...why be hopeless...thanks for this wonderful poem

i believe our consciousness is eternal and will follow a euphoric heaven like feeling.

This has many layers, wonderful! I enjoyed this a lot :)

I have been writing and wondering about such things, to have a strong spiritual side, does not always mean we do not wonder and maybe fear death....I know for all the promise of rebirth, I do...and yet I know I have been here many times before in one way or another!

It is strange to me how we have to find answers again...next time, if I do indeed return, I seriously am not doing so unless I am given answers first! lol

Awesome poem xoxo
