A Christian's Poem
In the Christian faith in eternity one gets to keep oneself.
For where anyone goes he is always going to be himself.
It is a powerful question to ask about oneself who he is, does he mind.
Self judgment is there, there's the pointing of the finger and fault to find.
One can only stand before God and through Jesus forgiveness ask.
Only through faith can oneself be oneself, which is a hard task.
Through forgiveness there is an armistice between God and oneself sought.
Born again of spirit it is the Dawn of a new day and the beginning of new thought.
Why should oneself fear oneself, through eternity of time you’re always yourself.
Who ever believes in me shall not perish says Jesus but live for eternity as himself.
“Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? Painted so strong,
by Paul Gauguin while in Tahiti describing all the peoples amongst the throng.
What is death? Is it millions of years of blackness in space?
Is it an Elizabethan mansion amongst the clouds winning some moralistic race?
Each person has their own interpretation of what heaven could mean.
To find peace with oneself, that gives one self’s spirit its true sheen.
