A Poetic Judgement Day

“What to look for in a God?” I asked holding a lightning rod “Who said this?” A spirit whose message seemed to be missed “It was just an inquiry Do not send flames to fire me What to look for in a God? Is a simple question from someone holding an electrical lightning rod Am I testing faith from my grave After a life where I sacrificed and forgave Darkness illuminated Hatred humiliated About the mess That I honestly confess” “No,” the voice did mention I assumed I got attention “I designed Your mind To decide Who should be your guide? It was a mystical thought Education I pondered should be understood and taught You with two legs, two arms and one head Studied what happens in the end when one is dead Do I exist? Or is this just a bunch of mist?” Checking the good guest list Hoping I was going to be granted an eternal wish I went to kiss Clenching my fist Strengthen my soul Already succeeded in all my layman’s goals “You are my God And I am proud of my job, I did on the place called earth From the time of my birth But now that my commitments are done It is time to know if I won A passport Into the heavenly fort Or am I due in some judgement court Where my actions are examined Waiting decision if I am damned Such harsh visions Filled with critical decisions” “Relax in peace Yes, you are deceased Rest there Without a scare Enjoy the warmth in the air That you are getting In this new setting Let others enjoy their time Eating bread drinking wine Using a host To discuss the Holy Ghost Saying I believe before the toast Avoiding being the lamb during the holiday roast Allow them to say their goodbyes Unleashing tears and cries Accompanied with sighs Normal results when someone dies”

Nice write Marc. Death rocks our second childhood to sleep in the cradle of the coffin.

Wonderful writing Marc, and a very enjoyable entertaining read, always good to ponder the afterlife, even if normal results when someone dies, I tend to look into the quantum realm myself for answers, where results are arbitrary simply by being observed, cheers David
