THE JOURNEY BEYOND


Just in a twinkle of an eye
A shining star goes off the sky
Before liniment could get to the aching sore
The transition is made through the exit door
Faster than the drop of rain from the cloud
The bell of judgment rings aloud
The sky goes blue
And the journey of life goes into review
Going from light to dark
Leaving behind a distinguish mark
Flashes of timeline and memories
That of happiness and those of miseries
Starting from the first seconds at birth
To the very last minute on earth
From every action
To it opposite reaction
From every drop of tears shed
To every strain of pain beared
From numerous evil that was suffered
To the few good that was whole heartedly offered
It goes on and on and on
Round every deed done under the sun
Bringing to a climax a journey of self discovery
A fairy tale of soul recovery
It sure will come at an unpredicted time
That unknown seconds which hunts us through our life time
The hour that expires on the body the garment of flesh
And an immortal life starts afresh
Accounting for every deed done in the land of the living
How we all carried out all our lives bidding
Every lies that was told
To every truth that was withhold
From our given abilities
To the way we best carry out our responsibilities
So ask yourself my friend
Where will you gonna end
On the side of the truth
Or those that will face his wrath
Is it going to be a jolly ride home
Or wishes and regrets in a tome
The choice is us to make
And the path is us to take

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;

Up to the stars;

That out of dust created man,
