Of Past Lives And Such - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of past lives and such I don't have an idea
We are born to die that's how life seems to me
Though on the Universal Karma I am one who believe
In life the fruits of the seeds we sow we do receive
In some form or other since 'tis Karma's way
For our sins against others the price we must pay
What goes around comes around does seem so true
We receive in turn what is only our due
Since none of their existence have come back to tell
Don't know what to say of an afterlife heaven or hell
Between agnosticism and atheism I am somewhere between
I can only believe in on what my eyes have seen
And it is a true fact and facts never lie
That us humans like all other life forms are born to die.

    Humans are born to live. Then die. And maybe, just maybe, live again. Food for thought, Francis. Excellent thought-provoking write! (Report) Reply

    A very realistic view of life condensed.
    Poetically done, with great insight and good taste.
