Souls are like glass

Strong at the base

Made to resist slamming

On tables and crates


But the body is fragile

Shatters anyway

Bottle bottom useless

Swept away


Modern miracle

Allows for recycling of glass

Born anew

Melted in vast vats


This time it is born

With a light green hue

Chemical constituents of other broken bottles

Mixed in a glassy stew


Are once-alive souls combined

In a recycling purgatory

Only to be confused

Ignorant of a previous story


Like other beliefs

Reincarnation requires

A leap of faith with

Rebirth a strong desire


What George Harrison says has relatable worth

Give me love, peace but KEEP ME FREE FROM BIRTH…  George Harrison, Give Me Love
