A Noble and a Traveler

From some other time, from some other race
I’ve stopped for a visit, from some other place
A sovereign soul, I retain still a trace
Of all other places I’ve been to in space
I’ll stay ‘til I’m tired and learn what I must
Then move on with joy to my home in grace

My clothes are my body, it will fall of in dust
It’s only borrowed, yet a great sacred trust
Genetics of my parents, my soul, my own
And I owe them greatly for their selfless loan
It serves for the moment, and offers a ride
To view my creation, I produced from inside

I’ve passed through the curtain to appear once again
On the stage of the theatre with all of my friends
I’ll learn from them and they’ll learn from me
Interchanging our roles, growing eternally
I retain all the best features that I ever had
With the help of my friends, to these I will add

I’ll wash out my vices, my lusts and my sin
And learn from the voice of my master within
He hears all my wishes, provides all my needs
He gives me the answers and governs my deeds
He is my silent teacher, the voice of the soul
Pushing me relentlessly toward my goal

I’ve been here many times, each time playing the role
That I most needed then, for the growth of my soul
In the fourth generation I’ll appear once again
With a plan for perfection and a lifetime to spend
Seeking final completion of an eons long quest
To reach the last level in the alchemical test

Until finally perfect, no need to return
No problems to solve, no lessons to learn
Then I can rest, my journey complete
Perfected and purified in my creators seat
Then through other dimensions in steps not yet trod
I will finally arrive to reunion with God

I chose this experience and I wrote the play
I chose the actors I perform with today
It has been what I’ve made it, none other to blame
I’m a noble and a traveler, in life’s wonderful game.

    A very deeply philosophical and scientific mixture of life cycles. Favorite line, "I’ll wash out my vices, my lusts and my sin And learn from the voice of my master within".. Congrats on the win

    Congratulations on your win. Thanks very much for entering my contest. This is wonderful work personifying science, it digs deep into the way science works inside a person. I enjoyed reading it.

    Yes, reincarnation (do you remember choosing this life? I do.) ...but....since I've read in one of your poems that you have an understanding of atonement :) I would venture to say that you are closer to reunion than you may think. Afterall, you have reached that point where you are ready to be taught by God, not man.There is one last enemy to overcome and that is Death. It can be done, its been done many times, and few there be that find it... none the less, it is the only way. hugs, Catie :)

    There are no omissions in this wonderful verse, and yes we all all actors, on this earthly stage, but oh the joy and rapture when we will finally lay eyes on his benevolent heart, it shall be the time to lose ourselves in love, as do the stars the sun and the moon, thank you V, and bless your beautiful heart, Many Happy Returns, xxx

    Re-incarnation? I have my misgivings about it and have written so. Nevertheless, your poem brings forth some interesting ideas worth thinking about. Thanks. Allan
