curious

curious

we wonder where we’re heading
we wonder where we’ll go
we wonder where we’ll end up
we really want to know

but where we came from matters
and what we were before
those are the two big questions
and the ones that matter more

the answer to where we’re going
can be found in where we came
and we’ll leave the life we’re living
along with memories and name

they say you can’t go back again
that age and death are theft
perhaps the place where we belong
is a place we never left
