An Endless Coin Toss

Where does it all begin?
How will it all end?
Do we burn in hell from our eternal sin?
Or do we rise up on heaven's wind?

Perhaps we simply die,
with no room for faith.
since we cant all rely,
on what some consider safe...

Some say we are reborn,
into a world of spirit
With no room for scorn
and no way to fear it.

So then what is this soul?
that prevents death in vain.
Sure it gives us these feelings,
But does not a dog too feel pain?

No i think it to be obvious now,
i have began to apprehend.
For as life be it the beginning,
Let then death be the end.

And as for now, what is next?
Man meets a wall he cannot cross.
A question unanswered,
An endless coin toss...

So let it be known
to the one that has thrown
this life's unknown
that your beauty has been shown.

Such a paradox in my mind
that has fooled all mankind
with it a humor i do find,

for with all comes death,
and with death all may know
but know not will the living.
An endless coin toss...

    We have two things in common in life we are born and we will die and it is a shame that we cant go back in time and start all over again,But then there is one question left in my mind what if there is such a thing called reincarnation. well that is something to ponder on , But personally I think we only get one time around, Thank you for sharing this with all of us it is brilliant and very well written.

    Topic on which most avoid. We all need to face and life becomes better. Keep the magical pen flowing. Sara
