Its been said by some;
from the wind swept seas,
eons ago they crawled ashore
without shape or name.

After generations of change,
they evolved with a brain.
Today they are called man,
the hierarchy of all species
on land.

If this is so…why does man
think he has a soul?

In the end…
where will his soul go?

Since no one has made
the round trip to tell if it's
heaven, hell or back
to the sea.

I guess we'll just have
to wait our turn to see!
