Alon Calinao Dy (Samar, Philippines)
Life and Death
A rough road
With no certain
That's full of challenges.
A precious gift from God
That no one knows
When and where to end.
Where one has to choose
Whether to do good or evil
According to his own free will.
That can lead failure to success
Or success to failure.
Therefore, no one really knows.
Is the cessation of breath.
It's a painful departure
And hard for anyone to endure.
Death is an inevitable happening.
Everyone has its own time frame.
It's a mysterious and unpredictable game,
But one should be ready for anything.
Though everyone has a life span on earth,
Save thy soul and never fear death.
In Jesus Christ's name,
Let no death put you to shame.
