A free verse poem Living the dream

To Cherish or To Perish

by smileycloud


Lest we be slaves to the grave


Dead is not always dead
Open the door to the phenomenon of life
Start living the dream
oh
Cherish the thought
Following the One and only
To eternal life


Or not
Though lost

The body putrid in the ground
The decaying brain like silt through a sift
The soul rotting in the mire
oh
Perish the thought
Buried in the tomblike grave
Done and dusted
Without a hope to our name


Or not
Perhaps fortified

A home full of love
A mind streaming happiness
A heart oozing compassion
Seeking the ever after
Forevermore
Living the afterlife
Nourish the thought
A seat at the right hand of the Father
Prepared for us by the Son of God
