My time is up

My time is up
Death is near
I'll put on a brave face
I'll hide my fear
Of the unknown
Where will I go?
When death is bestowed upon me
Is it endless sleep?
Will it all go dark?
Will I meet my family at Heavens Gate?
Maybe I'll burn in hell for lack of faith
Will I be judged on my time here?
Questions asked when deaths so near
If you only live once
Then I die with regrets
Because like a bad student, I have failed most test

    Our beliefs about death are conditioned by our thoughts about life. Maybe each individual has a unique experience at death...

    I hope you're right.. I wrote this after one of my lovely nightmares... I like to think that when we go we either create our own Heaven or Hell
