THE LORD GIVETH, AND THE LORD TAKETH AWAY . . .

AND THE LORD GIVETH AGAIN.

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.

 

I lived for thousands and thousands of years

As a mineral.

And then I died

And became a plant.

 

And I lived for thousands and thousands of years

As a plant.

And then I died

And became an animal.

 

And I lived for thousands and thousands of years

As an animal.

And then I died

And became a human being.

 

Tell me . . .

What have I ever lost by dying?
