Feeling Like an Earthly Reincarnation of an E.T. Soul: A Poem

Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.


I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.

-- Stephen Hawkins

Following is nothing but science fiction stuff

yet something that makes me quite amused

but I can't make it appear convincing enough

if it looks I am trying -- I hope to be excused.

They say E.T. souls may reincarnate on earth

taking human forms with some human genes

so such a dude would feel strange from birth

but now, hey, feel free to laugh, by all means.

It must be a sheer coincidence, but that's how I feel

like dropped down from far away place, like Mars

my entire life never felt like a regular human deal

the world from ever looking like one big farce.

Not talking about some introvert

in a corner of his lonely life curled

whose mind, dissected by expert

revealing "unadapted inner world".

And even less it's about some schizoid type

replacing reality with his own odd version

all absorbed by science fiction hype

wallowing in that deep immersion.

But as far back as I could trace

I always secretly felt I didn't belong

even though loving the whole human race

but with hunger for alternate truth being so strong.

How many of other may feel the same

while keeping quiet just not to appear odd

science fiction, or not, you give it your name

but not all of us feel as "children of a same god".
