“Intrinsic implicit immortal soul,”
Sincere sensible saints, sages said so.
Is it admissible? How could I know?
Ignorant me to play a puppet’s role.
Does inside mortal body reside soul?
Body dies out. Where does soul hide, or go?
Dimensionless? Opaque? Or shine to glow?
Is cycle of human life bound to roll?
Do animals, trees or microbes own soul?
Or, only humans are lucky to owe?
Human is animal, Nature to show.
Is human destined to different goal?
Body is alive till brain works and acts sole.
Brain stops functioning, body to forego.
If soul really exists, where can it go?
Is there separate hub to dwell for soul?
Do free souls just float in infinite space?
Or, rush to settle on novel fetus?
How is journey of immortality?
Do more souls sprout to match new living race?
Does soul exist in any living mass?
Or, souls just extend to infinity?
