Death is not the end of life


Gasping for air

in this bottomless abyss

slithering in my ghost's lair

with an unmistakable fragrance

a relentless smell of my past

the devil on my back

serpentine and black



Seeking my release

from the bondage of demons

searching for peace

in the face of turmoil

a reason to believe

amidst the chaos of treasons



too numb to feel

too broken to heal

shrouded by the arms of mist

blinded by the starlight

sheltered in the frozen ruins..

of myself,

with no one by my side

yea i tend to wonder about it a lot, like what happens when we die, where do we go? is there a Heaven and A hell? angels and demons? do we start all over, in a different life, get to make new decisions or do we come back as something other than human completely, an animal, a flower, or do we just die and thats that? i dont believe thats that. I believe there is so much beyond this life, beyond this world.

lol please dont. unless its in a good way. Im just saying. i think about it...and it scares me sometimes, but I believe and hope in Heaven and meeting my lost loved ones again someday. Thats what I truly believe, that our spirits move on.

hehe lol yep yep dont jump the gun. na i dont believe in it in that way persay, but more like in the animal kingdom, how if an animal dies, its body becomes fertilizer for all the grass and plants that grow, and are nourishment for other animals, its the circle of life..Ive watched too much Lion King lol, but anyway our bodies may become something else, but our souls move on and live free.

I too believe that death is not the end of life. Too bad that proof positive cannot be revealed until it is too late to share. Great Poem!
