Soul

Soul

The essence of my being;
Weightless, sexless and un-aging.
Will taste death but never die, or so I am told.
Defying laws of the physical world.

Entered my body, stealthily.
To rest in my mind, balanced delicately
on the tip of rational uncertainty.

Forced to eventually abandon the carcass,
and lie dormant in an obscure repository.
Awaiting judgment of the Almighty!
