A Portal to Glory

Should Death be arrogant and proud, Or slink like villains plotting harm? Should it come open-face, shouting alarm, And crying prophecies out loud? Is Death the villain, spoiler, thief -- Harbinger of our last Apocalypse? Is it a messenger whose coming slips Past pain and opens doors for grief? No. Death is but an entryway to Life That holds us true and lights the Way To horizons far beyond our mortal clay: It ends for good all ill and strife. With answers to all our questions immutable, We'll penetrate, at last, the inscrutable.
