Early morning prayer.

My eyes opened.

I am still alive;

living on planet earth.

Though unconscious for many hours;

unaware of existence,

unknowing of life,

incognizant of humanity

living in a space of void,

resident of nothingness,

here, but not here;

there, but not there.


Now, awakened

I know I am here.

Thank you Lord! I guess;

I may prefer to be there.

Heard it is less troublesome,

than here.


But, I accept here.

Though I am told there is better

And You know I want to be there,

with You,

I thank you for here,

for now.


Here, I am able to hope for there.

Adds meaning to my life here.

You always visit me here

and we sometimes talk about there.


You review with me my assignment here

that must be completed

before I can travel there.

And you remind me that

even while I am here,

I get a little closer

to there every day.


I am awake and ready

to start my “here” business.

I cannot neglect it

because what I do here

determines what I do there

and which there I go to.


You put me in time here,

even though You went back to eternity there.

You did not abandon me here.


Thank you Lord

for being here and there.

A discussion on the mystery of "afterhere"
"Here and There" sings its findings and delivers a profound
message that leads one to think on ontologic-teleological
