OUR BODIES PAST
 
Pray tell me of your bodies past,
But, first, do see what I do ask:
 
I seek not news of ancestry--
Of bodies in your family tree.
It's WHO YOU ARE I'd like to see--
Not members of your family.
Pray tell me of past bodies donned,
Of robes you've worn since early dawn.
It's you--your SELF--I'd like to see.
Your family tree is least to me.
In many bodies, habit we.
 
Each body tells me more of Thee
Than present body's history.
It's YOU I'd know--not what I see;
From corpse to corpse we do evolve,
And face the problems we're to solve.
So, seek not this in ancestry;
Our SOUL'S past has another tree.
This body's tree means least to me.
It's your past bodies I would see.
 
So tell me of your bodies past.
But, first, do see what I do ask.
 
Dr John Palo
