Humans need a Hereafter

Humans need a Hereafter

A Poem by S.zaynab.kamoonpury

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 my death and demise
Do place me in a peaceful palatial paradise.

beauty is everywhere if we just open ourselves up to it be you blind, deaf, mute, rich or poor happiness is not a formula or a set of circumstances it is a state of being:) heaven is in the now I used to work with the disabled and mentally retarded some of those folks put me to shame about my own senses of disparity I learned a lot from those guys over the years:) what an uplifting message you penned but I must say that many doors to heaven are sitting upon the earthly bounds

To be alive. Just posted it . Thanks.
I agree with your overall message, that death is not the black hole that some people think of it as. I believe there can be lots of exciting things that happen after we cease to exist in the flesh. The thing I highly disagree with, as far as your message goes -- you make it sound like life isn't worth living if you are poor or disabled (I am poor AND disabled) . . . and that we must die before life becomes worth living. A very sad & disturbing premise. I believe people who have disabilities are often living much better lives than those who seemingly have "everything" in life. I actually feel a strong dislike toward this way of putting people down & categorizing whether certain kinds of lives are worth living. Sorry not to be able to celebrate what you're saying here! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

S
I couldn't agree more concerning what you write. You have captured well the hope thant multitudes place their hope in . . . without it, it is a most disturbing world.

Life is followed by death and this is very true. We should feel life and we should elaborate our ideas our perception. Rocking in the place of heaven we can say that this is an excellent poem very well pen..100

zaynab kamoonpury,
The possibility of hope in this life is so important. Clues for the future are within our world. Life and death's imprint. Why? Surly nothing is by chance? Seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you. Matthew 7:7 https://www.phrases.org.uk/index.html
Jesus the Christ....The Great Equalizer. In this life and in the one to come.
Lord God Help Us All.

i am a free verse guy and this format of short and one word lines does work ..that being said...for me..this one is a bit too strung out .. i can't find the rhythm of it and when i do it is quickly lost .. would love to see some of the thoughts expressed in longer lines ... the theme is crystal clear ... deep and long held spiritual truths across religious differences ... reap what we sow ... the low lifted up .. the lifted up brought low .. we suffer many maladies as human beings .. the worst of which are pride, greed and selfishness .. i especially like that you are lifting up those with one disability or another ..as it is after all what is in the heart and mind that counts ... strong closing couplet! to which is say Amen! ;)

Your message is spot on and true. Humanity do need that place for this life on Earth is only temporary and transitional. Your faith shines through and your way of thinking is like that of all God's prophets pointing to Him the one and only. Kudos

You are welcome sister. Any time.
the poor die the richest if they have self-content and friends...
actually the beat of this works for me...the brevity of the lines paralleling the shortness of life...
no matter who we are...we never know how long our existence will be, so we must live each day to the fullest.

We do need something/someone to believe in to make life worthwhile... fact! We look forward to entering that 'better place' where the constraints of this life are no more. Food for thought here!
