Reality Of Both Lives - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Looking through tears of a lifetime,
looking out of fear, seeing inside
that being with God is so precious.

He's shown me that my little life
here on earth is very precious
to Him and I know that more than
ever now.

Touching my soul has brought
insight to mind that I may see the
reality of both lives.

    Tears of a lifetime! Yes, life is always with past memories. All the same, we have to move with a positive note. (Report) Reply

    Are the two lives 1) earthly mortal life and 2) heavenly immortal life. (?) That is I'm certain an accurate conclusion.
    The epic tradition of the Mediterranean involves the hero's descent into the Land of the Dead: What Odysseus witnesses is terrifying in its bleakness and emptiness, it is not Life after Death, just Death; but 700 years later, in the Aeneid Vergil portrays the view of the Mystery Religion of Orpheus with a clearly differentiated heaven and hell. It predates Chrisitianity but is in all essentials similar. Human beings apparently could not sustain their belief in something like the Homeric afterlife, they needed something that gave hope which the Mystery Religions provided. And Paul's epistles use the technical Greek term MYSTERION to describe Christianity. He knew how to graft the new religion on the old. This is the Spiritual History of Humanity and it fills us with wonders. (Report) Reply

    without a poet's note i would be somewhat at a loss to know what you are talking about, except that you've already given me some background already.
