Lack of Confidence

Should God be real despite unample proof

I'll stand for Him before I stand aloof

If heaven's gates refuse me when I die

Let not my lack of confidence be why

A Goodbye Unsaid

I waited shy for fear of saying wrong

But never did I fear I'd wait too long

The Moment of Death

My breathing slows, my vision blurs

My courage starts to wane--

What happens next is owed and just

And in a way--humane
