A Forgetful Ghost

I wrote this a while ago and have just found it again :) I think it was inspired by the Graveyard book by Neil Gaiman? Anyway please let me know what you think!


1. What I can remember of the beginning?

"There are many questions about death. What happens when we die? Where do we go? Do we even survive? There are several theories on this subject, some of which are better known than others.

One is that we go to the heavens, in the peaks of the clouds, to reside with the angels and God himself. This theory is complete and utter nonsense.

Another is that our spirits are reincarnated into another being with no recollection of out previous lives. This is a good theory because it means that nothing is wasted; all life is renewed and recycled.

The closest theory to the truth however, is that unfortunately there is no life after death. And that when you die, your spirit and your soul die's with you. But this is not the whole truth. The full truth lies with the dead and their sleeping souls that rest in everlasting peace. Until they are awakened that is.

So now I ask, have you ever heard of ghosts? Ghosts are spirits of the dead yes? Then why cant they be spirits of the sleeping dead that have been awakened once more when they are needed again on this earth?

I would want to tell you the whole truth of the after life and death itself but that would ruin the surprise so I'll just tell you this.

When you die, your soul sleeps until you are needed again to walk the earth. Whether this is for unfinished business or haunting someone, it does not matter, what matters is that when the only thing a ghost will know is their purpose and why they have been awakened. They just know what they have been put here to do.

My name is Spencer, by the way, and I am, myself, a ghost. I know that I should know why i have been awakened. But to be perfectly honest, i have no idea."
