Journey Of Souls

life is fleeting
 
passes swiftly by
 
every soul is born to die
 
every moment soon will pass
 
this earthly life does not last
 
where are we to go from here
 
the end of life we hold so dear
 
every one of us will perish
 
as will those we love and cherish
 
life is fleeting
 
does not last
 
into darkness will we be cast
 
or into a light so warm and bright
 
with long lost loved ones in our sight
 
some believe in heaven and hell
 
some believe in nothing
 
some have died and come back to tell
 
some saw heaven some saw hell
 
but each passing soul saw something
 
some say the light is blue
 
some say it is white
 
some said darkness was beckoning
 
some simply followed the light
 
one day death will come
 
all that lives will sucumb
 
back to choas of which we came
 
or cast into an eternal flame
 
some say hell is a frozen lake
 
not hot but very cold
 
not one of us wants to find out
 
and if i may be so bold
 
some are what i call sheeple
 
believing all they're told
 
how did God come to exist
 
an end of something that makes sense
 
but no beginning
 
i cannot conceive
 
but thats what some believe
 
how did God come to be
 
its far too complicated for you and me
 
where are our souls to go
 
perhaps we are not meant to know

    Ya, those are the kind of thoughts that can drive a person to depression or even insanity so I think I'll lighten up, ha ha! Thanks for reading and I'll be checking out your writting in a little while here. :)

    Lori, I am enjoying your poetry.I read a slam of yours earlier,, i did not get to comment the poem, because i was at work. But, i loved it. About this poem: right now, my fiance and I are talking about the existence of God, how ironic i found this poem... always~ pd

    Thanks and I was holding my breath when I saw there was a comment on these two because I don't want to offend any hyper religious know it alls or women like the target of my slam. It was mean but I couldn't help myself, hee hee! That is interesting you stumbled upon this one after discussing the existence of God...hummm
