Kit Kelen - soul - for godsbother


here's an idea
existence won't trouble

we're the unlikely ones

first to be here
second to know

call it dumb luck

to have made it
to be so made

can you imagine a start
but no finishing line?

surely that's where the trumpets come in?
try telling that to the strings

and wouldn't there be eternity after?
and after that again?

actually it's all around
and in the thick of things

a kind of hoarding
'a thing immortal'

won't the walls come tumbling?

perhaps if we start to see it as a problem
we'll begin to find some answers

  1. Nice way of putting things, (whether immortal or not)! I don't know if it's a real problem, but it rises questions and neither theologians, nor scientists nor philosophers have found a satisfactory way to put things beyond any "so what" or "what comes next" or what's after the last why etc etc!
