The fact of death, a proof of life,

yet, do we die in truth,

the happenstance of all that is,

a judgement, so uncouth.



Each is born and each to live,

and then we pass away,

our bodies perish in the sod,

then left, our souls to stay.



Could there be a greater God,

that would not gift such life,

Is all that is, nothing more,

than just a time of toil and strife?



There, to be only as emptiness,

to join the void, of space,

what is the reason, or the rhyme,

responsible for this place?



Can the earth spin about the sun,

even after we are all gone,

would there not be a tuft of grass,

a tree, a hill, nor a stone?



No birds to sing, frogs to croak,

no fish to swim or any breath,

as human kind no ways to find,

in a preventing of all's death?



The spiritual world, awaits us all.

and a home for us all to rest,

while we bide our time, in air sublime,

our wait is for the best.



We will heed the call, for souls of all,

in a trumpeting refrain,

a joining of our spiritual lights,

for it's then, we've all to gain.

Fall always seems to bring contemplative times. I enjoyed reading your words of contemplation and hope that your life is offering you the spiritual gifts that you need. Jamie

a fantastic reflection on the phenomenon called life!

an everlasting pondering of the life/death that's the two sides of the one coin called existence

"What is the reason, or the rhyme,

responsible for this place?"

beautifully voiced,

sensitively put,

the very same question I ask myself

for the thousand's time

thank you for an elegant meditation xo

"For do we die, in truth..."

When I see so much beauty in the nature you described, and how it inspires the human sprit; I am convinced that when we pass on, there is so much more than we understand of life, today. I loved your poem. :-)

Beautiful! I do not believe our life on earth is for naught. I do not believe we do not live until we die. I believe one is a step towards the other. Life is grand if you choose to see the beauty and overcome the obstacles and negativitiy. Repel negativity and let your soul's desires guide you. Peace can be found on earth!

Thank you bravewarrior and Genna East for your wonderful responses about my work. This was meant as an encouragement to our young people who are living in a world of such change and many battles to face. I want to leave them something to boost their senses and help them to meet the new challenges surely to follow soon. Thank you for reading my work. It makes all the difference to me.

I agree with you that the final rest is with our Creator, i.e. if we will be welcome there. I understand the questions, the worries, the emptiness, the "toil and the "strife" you talked about. All I know is that death abolishes all that is human - successes and failures, beauty and ugliness, wealth and poverty, power and subservience, etc. It is the greatest leveler/equalizer. Your poem leads to the pursuit of the ultimate truth.

I love this piece.

Thank you Bong, I do hope my message was well received by all that may read it. It is my belief about it all and what I have accepted after living a life that my Creator was so benevolent in gifting to me. Thank you.

Thank you for the reminder of how our life here is temporary and we have an eternity of fullness waiting beyond.

Thanks teaches, I believe that we do all have a life of immortality, and though we may end in the spirit world, still exist, and to go on in our new forms.

I enjoyed this, whonunuwho. Like you, I have many questions about death. WIll there be only emptiness before I am gone? Truly something to think about, and this is well expressed! Thanks so much for this!

Thank you midget, I have tried to portray that which we have to look forward to and that life truly never ends at our earthly deaths.

If immortality does indeed exist, then this poem has scored so powerfully due to its innate connection to the afterlife, wow!

What a mind you must have to craft up such creative poetic words into place, in this space and with such praise of the divine race of the "Immortals".

Awesome stuff thumbs up and out!

Thank you so much,CloudExplorer, I feel strongly about this and tried to convey that in my message of hope and attempt to inspire others.

Beautiful poem with great theme. Really this is our life we took birth, live life and go one day. This recycle takes place again and again. From where we come and where we go, no body knows.

Awesome poem.

Thanks anupma, I write out my feelings and hope what I share is well received.

Your poem should give hope to many people as they live, love and lose ones close to them in this life, for the life after this holds so much promise. I have written a hub about my belief in the afterlife. It makes me happy to think that I will see my loved ones again.

Thank you Peggy, your response is well appreciated. Yes, it is my strong belief that a spiritual world does await us all and one of more beauty and wonder for our minds to conceive.
