I started over once, I started over twice;
I hit the reset button, it was mighty nice,
Until I tried to do it after I was dead,
And found that resurrection was only in my head.

  1. Oh! An entire theology in a tiny packet. Nicely done.

  2. It’s wonderful to know that poetry survives The Reaper. Too bad for resurrection though…

  3. Potent write! ❤️

  4. A pleasant write. 🙂

  5. Well, this made me smile…….I’ll report back, once I find out what’s what on the other side of the veil, LOL.

  6. TC! Too cute! Aren’t all endings, new beginnings?

  7. Line 4 made me smile. Enjoyed the rhyming


  8. What a mix of whimsy and disappointment. However the truth is we do get a second chance on Earth but there is no escaping either heaven or hell so don’t waste your life away.

  9. Lisa at Greenbow

    Gosh, I certainly hope not.

  10. Oh, short and sweet. And the resurrection in the head of the speaker made smile but also reminded me of Deepak Chopra’s quote, “…resurrection is a leap into a whole new way of thinking.” If that’s not starting over, I don’t know what it is! 🙂
