Life After Death

I’m having thoughts, of bitterness and hate

I don’t know why! Why won’t they go away?

I’m hearing voices of death all around me

I don’t know why! Why do they all surround me?


This is my first thought of life outside of time

I don’t know why! How could such a thought be mine?

Do people live even beyond their death?

They surely do! Because that is what makes sense!


I do not understand it all the way

So I asked a pastor, and he gave it all away

People think that to get to Heaven, you must be good

They are sadly mistaken, because no-one is “good”


To live in Heaven with the God most high

You must confess your sins, and let him rule your life

Ask for forgiveness and he will forgive you

No matter how many evil things you do
