This is a story about life after death, and how sometimes we wonder about what legacy we will leave behind and where we will ultimatly go to.

What should happen to me

If I were to be buried like a bone?

Deep beneath the ground I have no home

except the worms for company

and the earth for my soft pillow.

What should happen

when this is all I have?


What should happen when my bones begin to rot?

When I no longer am or ever will be?

Will you then, with your strong, firm hands

take me and caress me,

tell me I am not,

what I so dread to think I am.
