Note to Self

Most men are not too overmuch concerned
with afterlife, nor what this life has meant.
As fables go, the Christian Hell has turned
ridiculous, for those with half a cent
of sense, but nothing else has filled this shelf.
These folks just live as if there wern't a need
to understand the sanctity of Self,
nor just what blossoms wait within its seed.
Each one on earth appeared here to resolve
a brace of issues, pertinent, not here
but there, where brighter souls work to evolve
to master powers of a greater sphere.
Invent your own religion, bend your knee
to grace and virtue, love and purity.
