a toast to the afterlife

entry picture

here’s to the afterlife —

what fate does the day after The Last Day hold?

doubt ,

doubt consumes man’s faith .

down into the depths of the pit

my mind descends ,

down to the caverns ,

the walls closing in .

the light dwindles ,

crushed under the weight of this apparent reality .

hopeless and helpless ,

lonely and tired .

beaten down by the endless sorrow .

discouraged by the reflection in the mirror .

day after day

the darkness overpowers .

day after day 

allowing It to win .

dwelling in the tasteless comfort of numbness .

spending time hearing but not really listening .

full with life but not really living .

so fearful for tomorrow  ,

that I can not really be Here for today .

a change ,

eyes open to the blessings .

i begin to ascend .

lifted by an Essence ,

lifted by an unconditional Love .

enter .

enter into eternity .

here’s to the afterlife .

I love that this ends with hope and love. Beautiful poem of contrasts.?
