Life

Life
Dr. James E. Martin
©May, 2013


The brevity of life
Is a settled fact.
There is really no need
To negatively react.

Some live their life
As if it will never end.
They give no thought
Where the future will send.

Is there life still
When the years have stalled?
Can former suggestions
Ever be recalled?

What if this life
Is not all that there is?
Can I at that time
Prepare for the final quiz?

Is there a source
For answers clear?
Can lingering doubt
Finally disappear?

The answer my friend
Is a definite YES!!
There is no reason to be bound
In a confusion mess.

The Bible is settled
Though skeptics will doubt.
It will still be standing
When they are rooted out.

The decision is yours
To clear your mind.
In His eternal Word
Resolution you will find.

In this life of plenty
You can certainly choose
To ignore the challenge
And for eternity lose.
