This life and others

I feel I’ve lived a thousand lives

I wanted to write a poem about reincarnation.

About the knowing I have that this life, in this body is just one of hundreds. Maybe one of thousands.

I wanted to express, in verse, the joy of understanding that I am eternal. That we are eternal.

I couldn’t do it.

So I wrote a poem about writing a poem. That’s all I could manage.
