The epiphany of a soul

The old story goes that when we die our soul goes

And ascends to the heavens above, but who really knows?

But Iím not concerned about where my soul will go

Because Iím still trying to find out if I even have one of those

What is my soul? My spirit, essence, energy, aura or glow?

Where is my soul when Iím alive?Ö I really donít know


Because supposedly itís there before we die

Like a fire itís said that our souls burn inside

Itís seen in our hearts and itís seen in our eyes

But is it really there or am I just being blind?

Was it there when love turned from butterflies to ďcompromiseĒ?

Was it there when I was young and life was always a surprise?

Was is there the first time I said I loved

And was it there the first time I told lies?

Was it there when I was a baby and my mother tended to my cries?

Because Iím dying now to find out where my soul truly resides


Because how can I predict a destiny for something that desires salvation

When I canít even understand its realness or formation?

Was my soul there when I was a fetus and went underwent neuralization?

Or was it there at day 21, when my heart started beating with regulation?

Is it there when my ecto-, endo-, and mesoderm start their primitive migration?

Or is it there before, when my synctiotrophoblast invaded during implantation?

Was my soul there when I was a ball of cells undergoing gastrulation?

Or was my soul there at the first division; the very start of differentiation

Because if you believe a soul is placed there upon conceptionís congregation 

Then thatís to say you believe a soul is the product on an acrosomeís penetration

The culmination of a spermatocyte causing the zona pellucidaís depolarization

So is there a soul in a sex cell thatís haploid before our chromosomesícombination?

Because even the novel sequences of the DNA that make us have known configurations

Ribose sugars, a nucleic acid chained helix  and some phosphorylation

And those are each composed of known atoms in different orientations

Is our soul there? In the empty spaces between our atomsí nucleus and orbital rotations?

If our soul energy then must it not have mass that takes up some space in physical manifestation?

Or is it aura, a light of a massless glow that emits from within us like radiation?


Or is our soul really just the fact that we are aware and have come to a higher realization?

A figment of our imagination designed uniquely for the thought of self preservation


But why then, when we are angry our minds sense so much frustration?

And when we are happy itís our whole body that feels elation

In sadness our entire essence is stuck in an act of desperation

And in love it is our entire being that craves more of that sensation


See, we donít know what most of the universe is comprised of, but we still all see the beauty of its creation

Thatís why even though we may never find the soul inside us; I still hope your soul is my soulís destination

I'm not as deep a thinker as you but the line that I think hits the nail on the head is:

"A figment of our imagination designed uniquely for the thought of self preservation"

I thought that was a profound statement.
