Beyond the Final Breath

What comes after death?
What lies beyond the final breath?
Is the body just a mere shell?
Do we really go to heaven or hell?
Or the murky fields of Asphodel?
Or are we all under a spell?
Is life itself just one big dream?
Or is this all a wicked scheme?
Is Valhalla out there somewhere?
A hoard of riches beyond compare?
Paradise, Nirvana, Eternal Bliss?
Or is everything lost in the abyss?
And what of God? And what of Satan?
Zeus? Hades? Anubis? Aten?
Is there such a thing as a rebirth?
Or do we just go back into the Earth?
From dirt we begin in dirt we end.
What is it that lies around the bend?
