Humans need a Hereafter

 

Human's 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 short-lived     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.

Love this poem

you understand that this world is cruel and fallen 

be the light that sheds through the darkness 

be the hope to the hopeless

Powerfully written! 

I enjoyed this stanza very much. Well done. 

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

I love the use of examples here. I also like the spacing of the lines! It's very evocative of Anglo-Saxon poetry.

Not my newest poem but thanks. Anglo Saxon eh, good!
