Is there more to come beyond after a mortal life?
Or is lifeless the sole reward for our daily strife?
When the body finally lies still after the last breath,
Does a soul continue on, after what we call death?
Or after a life of struggle, sweat, and endless toil,
Is the body simply returned to the earth and soil?
Either way, our time is numbered and our days set.
Try not to be remembered, but impossible to forget.
