Many Lives Poem About Reincarnation

Updated on September 12, 2012

Alexander the Great

Life is a Stage

This one was written when I was in a reflective mood! Reincarnation is a funny thing really, one day I believe in it, and another day I am not so sure. Anyway I hope you like this. I would be great if it were true.

_

If i could travel through time,

What would I see?

A thousand familiar faces

Staring at me.

_

Was I Napoleon?

Alexander the Great,

Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard, maybe Henry the Eighth.

_

Maybe, just maybe

I will fly to the moon

Or just become famous for drawing cartoons.

_

Each day we star

In our own special play,

Step up on stage,

Be king for a day.

_

Then right at the end,

The curtains come down

Step of the stage,

Hand back the crown.

_

That day may be over,

But surely you see?

The king may be dead,

But that wasn't me.

_

Tomorrow i'll change,

Step back on the stage,

Open the new book,

And turn the first page.

_

Start a new chapter

From Heaven to Earth,

Life turns a new circle

From death to rebirth.

_

      Hi, saddlerider, I think I agree with you! lol that sounds really confident doesn't it? the trouble with me is that I would love to believe this, and so many things in my life have more or less proved it in the past, but my scientific mind says, no! so I need to try and see it from a non scientific point, what do they know? lol thanks again nell

      I do believe in reincarnation. There is no way in God's green earth that great brains that have gone before us just fall into some eternal void. I believe we come back and keep trying to get it right, either on this plane or somewhere in the fifth dimension. I also believe that we are just a thin vale to the other side, like a mirror looking back at us, the spirits can see us clearly and we get to see them now and then. Like I did on my off road experience in Kentucky a few years ago when I was trucking. Peace and hugs

      Hi, Nellieanna, sorry it took so long to answer, i have been out all day at the local regatta! I do like my name Melanie, but I have always been called mel, and sometimes it sounds like a cat meowing! lol so when I came on here and they said to choose a writing name I changed it to nell as I love it, and also it is a family name. I am a Gemini, split personality! thanks again nell

      I half-way believe in reincarnation. Half-way because there is so much unknown that I feel sure whatever it is is far beyond our present earth-bound ability to imagine, so whatever we might sense as something we call reincarnation is surely much more glorious. Time travel is also more than slightly possible and probable. But again, we can only imagine its form. - - or else we already know how and don't recognize we do.

      I like your stuff. Good stuff.

      But why would someone with a musical name like Melanie choose to be called Nell? I've been some form of Nellie, Nell Nellie Anna, Nell Ann, Ann, Annie, and finally just insisted on Nellieanna because it's really my name, though conbined into one for practical reasons. Andd I like it now but I never preferred my name and wished for something like Valerie or Emily or - Melanie! ;-)

      Anyway - nice to know you! We Nells need to stick together. I'm Aquarius, Sagittarius moon, Gemini rising. You?

      Hi, epigrmman, wow, thank you for your amazing compliments. I don't know what to say! lol I just love poetry, in fact the main thing that I originally got published was a piece of my poetry, in an anthology. I just sometimes see things in my mind, and I start scribbling, and eventually it all falls into place. Thank you again nell

      The pleasure I obtain from your poetic thoughts is equal to spending a day at a museum or art gallery - awe inspiring!!!
