Life Is Still A Mystery


Grow old, diseased and eventually die
is there a secret life behind
when a thousand years ago
Buddha, trying to uncover the veil

while Solomon, the Prophet
uncover the veil and trying to communicate
with all beings in the universe
whether we get the secret legacy

although Moses tried to uncover myths
the magicians and managed to split the ocean
cross into the promised land
world of myth and magic still disguised new

while Jesus cure the sick
and raise the dead
he himself died on the cross

and Muhammad, The Prophet
said, had opened the veil
However, grow old, diseased and eventually die
is there a secret life behind
when a thousand years ago
Buddha, trying to uncover the veil

while Solomon, the Prophet
uncover the veil and trying to communicate
with all beings in the universe
whether we get the secret legacy

although Moses tried to uncover myths
the magicians and managed to split the ocean
cross into the promised land
world of myth and magic still disguised new

while Jesus cure the sick
and raise the dead
he himself died on the cross

and Muhammad, The Prophet
said, had opened the veil
However, life is still a mystery

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
