The question of souls

Today I heard a little girl say
that she was a spirit.

There are a few matters
I no longer grapple with
that are pushed aside
cornered and out of my mind

Does the world exist
from the outside in
or from the inside out?
Will I one day leave my human casing
forever leaving this planet
for something else?

Do I already float with the finished
flirting with the end
without realizing the consequence
of never again?

There are a million questions
to which no answer will suffice
no amount of consolation or speculation
will ever prove to be right

We are often told
cherish your life
live for the moment
enjoy the ride

When the knowledge in a child
can shake the foundation
of the day’s order
neither heaven or hell
can step in to stop
questions the mind may harbor
