Consciousness, a mystery so deep,

A puzzle to unravel, a secret to keep,

The nature of our thoughts, our inner world,

A mystery that has left many unfurled.

The mind-body problem, a debate so old,

A question that still remains untold,

Is the mind just a function of the brain,

Or is there something more, that we can't explain?

Is consciousness just a byproduct of our biology,

Or is there something more, beyond the realm of technology?

A metaphysical mystery, a philosophical question,

That has left many in a state of introspection.

The nature of human consciousness, a topic so complex,

A mystery that has left many perplexed,

Is it just a product of our physical being,

Or is there something more, beyond our seeing?

So let us delve into the depths of our mind,

And explore the mystery, that we often find,

For the nature of our consciousness, is a question so profound,

A mystery that will continue to astound.
