Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

Our bodily shadow gets torned off

To reveal the light inside

Are you afraid of following the light?

Many who had close encounters with death

Say letting go is as easy as their last breath


Why I am afraid?

What am I trying to hide?

What do I I have to lose?

God is the light I will follow

We’ll entwine like there’s no tomorrow


Let go if your past regret

Let go of your present troubles

Let go of your future worries

I know, when death strikes

It not something anyone likes


You could be hit by car

You could be struck by lightning

You get die from a sickness

But God knows when we will die

Your expiration date is written in the sky


Live your life the best that you can

You only live once

There no do-overs

Your movie has already started

And the credits are rolling for the dearly departed
