Musings on an Afterlife

Maybe this life is the afterlife

Have you ever considered that?

Perhaps THIS is how

we reap what we sow,

right here and now

I don’t remember submitting

an application for this life

nor anyone seeking my permission

Did I do something to earn this?

Or was it punishment for an omission

I don’t know but from the start

I’ve been told I have a part to play

Pushing the end result

into the future of another day

into the realm of another world

At least that’s what they say.

Wintery days make me try to remember what I was doing before I was born.
