Between consciousness and oblivion
is there a curtain call,
a momentary glitch between
one consciousness and another,
for I can see no purpose in nothingness,
no plan of learning that ends so abruptly,
to complete a physical life
with but limited experience overall.
No matter how one perceives death,
the question remains unanswered,
if only for a resounding proof
we are left with snippets
of unsubstantiated information
and a strong belief system that has existed
from the beginning of time
and human thought.
Yet in consideration of the purpose of life,
and from a viewpoint of understanding
and learning, we have to admit
that death seems unlikely
to end consciousness as we know it,
inferring a need for further experience,
perhaps other lives, to complete our ascension
toward a more perfect being.
The concept of God is universal,
because logically, there has to be a creator,
a mind behind existence,
and the power of such a being
cannot be less than omniscient,
and within that perfection, so elegantly displayed in life,
it reasons that our learning is toward that goal,
and to that end, perhaps many lives of required experience.
Belief is all we can muster
in this rather complex conundrum,
but as science becomes more attuned to the spiritual,
we are close to confirming
that consciousness does not end at death,
rather transforms, and reincarnation
seems to fit the scheme of things,
discoveries and confirmations becoming abundant.
