Another World - Poem by Daniel Lloyd Kennedy

There is a world outside our own, It's there we go when we go home,
It's where we go when we're not here, Where memory is crystal clear,
Encompassing all the lives we've led, All the truths all the dread,
All our thoughts n' feelings felt, All the prayers when we have knelt.

All the friends, neighbors, and more, Even when we closed the door,
The time we helped a cherished friend, or we helped a heart to mend.
Kindred souls out on a limb, Will bring us back from this worlds whim,
Helping others will lead the way, For our return to him some day.

Time goes by this life will pass, And home again we'll be at last,
To judge our life this time around, And see if we return this ground.
Our life here on our cherished earth, Begins and ends with our birth,
We left behind our rightful place, To start anew in this worlds space.

We have chosen time spent here, To learn emotions triumphant cheer,
Added to our knowledge learned, Combine to make duality earned.
Hopeful that this time's the last, we'll decide if we have passed,
And then it's on to home again, Where this world ends the new begins
