HUMANS NEED A HEREAFTER

Life would
be quite worthless and short
If this is
the only
dear life
we
have
Great
plans just death can abort
to be
useless
once you
met
your grave.
And for
those who
die young,
in
childhood's
tender
ages
How short
and
incomplete life would be
How
unfair and
unlucky if
death's
the end
for them
Besides
life to the fullest is eternity.
What
about
those who
born
and die
poor
or those born deaf, blind or lame
What if
they were
so
doomed
without
any cure
How
unlucky if resurrection never came!
But a
belief that
there's a
life
after this
could be
of great
consolation and solace
especially
to the
poor
handicapped,
the
shortlived
that they
could
make it up
under heaven's grace!

For the
good one
who is born blind,
In heaven
shall he in
brighter vision see
And the
goodly
one yet
who
has lost his mind
will in the
afterlife
be as sane as could be.

The deaf
man with
his balance
of pious
acts
Only the
hereafter
would
compensate
what he
lacks
And that
godly one
born poor
and who dies poor
could be
of the
richest at heaven's door.

In this life
those
who've
been
saintly yet
unable to talk
could
cheer up
to believe
what
heaven
has in stock
For this
world can
be misery,
Heaven's
the place to rock
In this
world at
times
you've
to let the hawk gawk
Knowing
your
tormentor
in
heaven
shall ye mock
Thus for a
true
happy
ever
after
for an
abode of mirth and laughter
Work
towards thy hereafter
A divine
place
devoid of disaster!

O' God therefore after our death and demise
Do place us in a peaceful palatial paradise.
