Treasures of Life

The thread of life we're not given
To understand,
It"s like trying to catch a moonbeam
In your hand.
For life's a gift that all too soon
Will disappear,
Leaving us to face that everlasting 
New frontier.
The scales of  justice won't render
What we'll ask,
But mercy will be most sought
For vitality"s task.
Your final assessment will be
Determined by sin,
Not how generous or scant
Years have been.
Don't delve unduly on the future
For days go fast,
Only treasures laying up in Heaven
Will surely last.

    A good message for us all... Though we reach and reach to obtain more and more...none of it goes with us on our last day. Insightful and inspiring write. Enjoyed !!!
