The Afterlife

The Afterlife

A Poem by Shannon Math

My outlook on this subject.

We all wonder what the afterlife is like.
Some think you'd be wrapped around in complete darkness for eternity.
Some think you'd walk around watching over everyone.

I think we would be asleep for eternity.
My sister thinks we'll all be ghosts watching over others.
My grandma thinks we would be chosen to go to hell and suffer or go to heaven to be in peace.
My mom thinks we would be living our lives in the promised land.

The afterlife is something to think about.
It makes you wonder what REALLY happens after death.

Is it those possibilities that I've already listed...
Or is something else?

Yeah, death to answer a question. I think sort of a mix of all of those things, but this is really cool, did you know that most people aren't afraid of death, they're afraid of what happens after death/life. Interesting huh?

Anyway, it makes you think and I really like that in a poem, personally.

Its a great take on a subject no one really knows,or if they have can't describe Death.
not to rymithice but ''deep''? well what ever you mean on that. :o)

Death is different to every one and probably happens differently to every one cause of this.

I quit trying to figure out death a long time ago. I believe in Karma. Good deeds will be rewarded. Bad deeds will come back to you. I like this poem. Many good examples of death and the resting place for our souls and spirits. I like the open ending. Always good to end a poem with a question. A outstanding poem.
