Humans need a Hereafter

Life would

be

worthless

and

short

If this is

the only

dear life

we

have

Great

plans just

death can

abort

to be

useless

once you

met

your grave.

And for

those who

die young,

in

childhood's

tender

ages

How short

and

incomplete

life

would be

How

unfair and

unlucky if

death's

the end

for them

Besides

life to the

fullest is

eternity.

What

about

those who

born

and die

poor

or those

born deaf,

blind or

lame

What if

they were

so

doomed

without

any cure

How

unlucky if

resurrection

never

came!

But a

belief that

there's a

life

after this

could be

of great

consolation

and solace

especially

to the

poor

handicapped,

the

shortlived

that they

could

make it up

under

heaven's

grace!

For the

good one

who is

born

blind,

In heaven

shall he in

brighter

vision see

And the

goodly

one yet

who

has lost

his mind

will in the

afterlife

be as sane

as could be

The deaf

man with

his balance

of pious

acts

Only the

hereafter

would

compensate

what he

lacks

And that

godly one

born poor

and who

dies poor

could be

of the

richest at

heaven's

door

In this life

those

who've

been

saintly yet

unable to

talk

could

cheer up

to believe

what

heaven

has in

stock

For this

world can

be misery,

Heaven's

the place

to rock

In this

world at

times

you've

to let the

hawk

gawk

Knowing

your

tormentor

in

heaven

shall ye

mock

Thus for a

true

happy

ever

after

for an

abode of mirth and

laughter

Work

towards

thy

hereafter

A divine

place

devoid of

disaster!

O' God therefore after my death and demise

Do place me in a peaceful palatial paradise.
