Siri Espy: Musings

Existential questions
weigh heavy on my mind
but those elusive answers
are impossible to find.

Where is all the merriment
unending joy and mirth?
Will I find life after death
or even after birth?

Where did we all come from?
Is there a closetful of souls
waiting to be sent to earth
in predetermined roles?

And who am I really
deep down in my core?
Am I an original
or have I been here before?

Are there better times ahead
when we reach the great beyond
transported to Nirvana
with a cosmic magic wand?

I entertain these weighty thoughts
about the universe
and hope life will get better
although it may get worse.

In matters of philosophy
I'm only a beginner
but my musings must be set aside
it's time to go make dinner.
