On Between Being and Non-being – A Found Poem by Melba Christie
On Between Being and Non-being – A Found Poem
It must be a wondrous state – the state of non-being
No one comes back to let us know
exactly what it’s like
But those who have experienced being resuscitated
and brought back to life
Tell us that there is a warm and loving light that surrounds and comforts.
The important thing is what we do in the between
Did we love unconditionally?
Did we soothe a troubled soul?
Did we practice the Golden Rule?
Were we true to ourselves?
Did we believe?
Does doing the right things and being a good being ensure
that we have a better non-being?
Should we worry more about today and not tomorrow?
