Life beyond death (Sijo)

If there is anything out there beyond death,
philosophy failed, religion failed, now the physical sciences,
Do we deserve to know but look into our own doings.

    The ultimate mystery, but a wise resolution. Thanks for your contest it was creative and fun. Good luck, in this new to me form. Seems like you have taken it into deep thought.

    Very thought provoking poem Dr. Ram...Though I follow the Christian faith I have always thought it rather arrogant to believe I 'deserve' to live forever (frankly, the thought of eternity unnerves me a bit too) I suppose only those who have gone before us really know the truth...also thanks for your kind comments and support - Tim

    the poem makes me want, someone to give me the answers! But see that maybe, i should look to myself and find what i can within.

    I love your Sijo, dear Ram. Thanks for your comment but believe me, the prologue and play were not a...comedy... unfortunately. Well that's why this Epilogue of Love...I'll keep smiling though...All the best, Iolanda
