           THE GATE OF DEATH
I will shut my gate; and no man can open it.
And if I open it; all men shall come in once because of hunger in their world.
The bodies that entered  me daily is unbearable.
The entrance of my gate has been battered.
Come  with your money;   ye  affluence  that desire  my beautiful gate.   
The weeping voices , blood stain of the  innocents  and the curses that follow some death into my gates;  Scared me.
 I am only an entrance  for your  journey  and not comforter of the  bereaved. 
I   lift up my gates, for evil souls to enter without  security check on them, yet they refused   to enter.  
They are waiting to snoop –on  my gate;  in my gate no detective enters and return.     
The imagination of hell kept many souls from dying, 	
The gate of death where only the dead  in Christ dances for eternity.

My entrance is a sepulcher of peace  for those that come in full age and lived rightly.
Gate of death where entrance is  optional.
The faces of sepulchral, gloomy and  somber tone    voices  of  farewell never  seize.
Foot prints of the  dead   has broken my gate.   
But the  architectural  splendor of my gate  which  split personalities; 
Whenever they come in contact,  
I will shut my gate against unhappy faces; and corpses will walk freely with the living  until the  time appointed.

Pastor Emmanuel Brown Omojevwe
