The Hereafter

Written by: Melody Coster

The hereafter, someplace, somewhere
a world that is believed by most
to be where another life awaits us
physical bodies in this world
vessels used to substain us in our travels
shadowy beings in the next
who are believed to walk among us
yet are unseen by the living.
The hereafter, naught but a vesitbule
where those who have surrendered
this worlds' physical hold on them
are allowed to ascend to a higher plane
where pain, strife, and evil no longer exist
only peace and beauty are known and felt
this next world gives hope to all
that a glorious hereafter awaits us.
