Will We Ever Know


Will we ever know
the past lives we once lived
or will we always be in the dark
of who our souls once was

Will our past lives ever meet
and give us the memories
that are lost in the recesses of our mind

Do our souls
go meet our past lives when we are sleeping
leaving us no memory on waking,
is it like a secret never to be told

Will we ever know

    I don’t see this in the literal sense of an actual past life, but in the metaphor that ourselves of today are different beings then we were ten fifth teen years ago, I’m probably wrong, but to me it feels like looking at the pass and seeing my soul as being different from what it was then, a past life. A good read Dave (Report) Reply

    That will be the biggest reality of life that we will know only after death. Nice thought. (Report) Reply

    Some people claim they know who they were in a past life - I suffer with so much neck pain, reckon I must have been Anne Boleyn! ! hahaha. Thought-provoking Dave, and an intriguing question. (Report) Reply
