My answer

All matter is energy which can't disappear
But Where does our energy go from here

Our body matter is gone for good
Where our energy goes is not understood

Cycles create our universe
And everything that lives and dies on the earth

It only makes sense our energy cycles back
Scientifically it's a viable fact

The famous tunnel ending at the light
Is the birth journey and the first sight

Our energy returns but not the same
We are a brand new person with and brand new name

Our memories were stored in our brains
When we die that does not remain

If ten years ago your mother died
She's a ten year old child somewhere alive

There's no arguing with facts
 The person who died never comes back

Just their energy in someone new
 You wouldn't know them and they wouldn't know you

Science makes more sense to me
Than believing in some maker we cannot see

This is just an educated guess
Of what happens after death

Heaven and hell aren't real to me
Nor are all the gods we never see

Our higher power is within
This cycle will go on until the earth no longer spins

The people you've lost aren't in heaven or hell
They're back on earth doing very well

It's nice to think that when you go
You will see all the ones you love and know

The beauty is you'll no longer grieve
Your new life is fresh for new memories

Of course we will miss them while we're still alive
But we too will restart a brand new life

There energy has just been transferred
And that is my answer

nice piece on reincarnation, are you Hindu, Buddhist? You explained your beliefs on the soul, quite well without even mentioning the word. While I take another viewpoint, I admire you for your talent in writing as you did. I like Pashang's comment below, we don't know anything, really. It's all done in faith.

You are right, energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it can change from one form to another. It seems that you're certain that the energy of a dead person will come to another person! There is Heisenberg uncertainty principle, and Schrodinger Probability function that deal with randomness of all particles. The more you learn, the more you understand, that you don't know anything. Thanks for stopping by..... Pashang

Hi, Tanis. Thank you for stopping by my poem with your great comment. I do see a lot of similarity in your well-written 'My Answer' poem, which I enjoyed reading very much. The only difference is that I do believe that God created all souls and they eventually return to Him at the end when the souls are perfected through many lifetimes. But your viewpoint on that is a solid one too! Thanks again, Sandra
