What will happen then

Why are you here
Where have you been
Where are you going
What will happen then

I am the spirit in the flesh God made for me
Inside the lips of life the fulfillment of a need
Two spirits danced in the flowing river of seed
The Universe manifests itself again with certainty

Tell me now tell me true
Just who is the mirrored you
Why do you do what you do
When it only brings painful blues

Why are you here
Where have you been
Where are you going
What will happen then

Is it really so easy breathing in the mirror to rationalize
All the darkness deep in fear with only a wall of lies
Protecting the secret spark of light a contended soul n body sigh
Stolen and snatched moments at the gates peeking inside

Martyr or messiah all humans have faults doubts and cry
Loosing our common empathy we dumbly wonder why
Our children find it so easy to so wastefully die
Reality must be truthful to be useful yet we live lies

Why are you here
Where have you been
Where are you going
What will happen then

It is true that your cheatin heart will always tell on you
Deep in the genes it knows the power of each beat is Creation’s truth
Your ego is beholdin to all the other sparks of God under your roof
To all the loves that sigh or cry in the night or mew or woof

If you’re alive by chance or clone flesh powered by Spirit of Light
So many bubbles of possibilities bound to choose a few not right
You’d better hold onto all your loves with all your might
Some other bubble could steal them striking from the darkness of the night

Why are you here
Where have you been
Where are you going
What will happen then

Breathe in breathe out look beyond the eyes in the mirror
You should care about the state of the world its attendant horror
Because the commonality is the real root of your private terror
When the walls of lies come tumbling down loved ones gone no longer there

What tune then will be the music of your lonely dreams
When the air escapes from your breath not in sighs but screams
All the bubbles of possibilities have converged on this timely scene
We are all here this moment together in the inbetween

Why are you here
Where have you been
Where are you going
What will happen then

So many of Creation’s Spirits needlessly die
All the loved ones can do is cry
Adding to the haunted misery in their eyes
Because of ego’s political and economic lies

Yes we must till and kill to survive
Flesh needs nourishment or it will die
But ego’s Spirit is sucked dry by the lies
Spirit’s fulfillment found in love’s honest sighs

Why are you here
Where have you been
Where are you going
What will happen then
