Life and Death


Life,
A rough road
With no certain
Direction.

Life
That's full of challenges.
Oftentimes,
It's unpredictable.

Life,
A precious gift from God
That no one knows
When and where to end.

Life
Where one has to choose
Whether to do good or evil
According to his own free will.

Life
That can lead failure to success
Or success to failure.
Therefore, no one really knows.



Death
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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
