The power of growing wealth
diverts from premonition
of age and failing health,
til science achieve its mission

or God renew their dust
to swarm again on Earth
in perfect Christian trust
eternal life from rebirth? --

causing us to ponder
if born again bodily whole,
a fresh new planet to wander,
what happens to the soul?

Better to quietly accept
the cycle of life and death
and peacefully adapt
to the absence of breath,

then follow the tunnel to light
for your own life review
open to whatever is true
and with heavenly insight
pass on through.
