Simply dead...

Simply dead...

A Poem by Frieda P

[ ? ]

Can you still spy the sky when you die,
do puffy clouds of acceptance get in the way...
does eternal sleep lull us all to a state of abandon
pure as the driven snow before blackness ensues,
will god look you in eye and send his regrets...
for such frivolity and volatility assaulted upon our lives...
or is dead,                     just simply dead?
This I'd like to know...

Wow! Not often do so few words stir so much thought. Well penned!

The most important unanswered question ever posed. Sure, there are a core group of scientists and atheists who will tell you it's already answered, that, there is nothing but black, unconscious sleep after you finally close your eyes; still, intuitively, that just doesn't feel right. And for me, that feeling doesn't come from place of fear or dogma, but logic.

A mind stimulating piece.

I hope we don't have to finout for a long time.

It is the question that has plagued us since we walked upright, I think. Faith is a tough one. Sometimes we have it, sometimes we don't, but I think if we have the basic notion that people are more than electric currents and connections, then something must live on ...

I think I like just about everything about this. It is fully complete in and of itself even if it wonders about the ultimate question. Not seen it done better is what I basically mean.

like Red said...we just don't really know what's there another place better than this...up there through the clouds...
or are we just dead and that's it...and we are either dust or ashes and a few memories.

guess we won't know until go ourselves and find out.

Good question ive pondered recently myself. The thing is we dont know...even if we are religious we rely on faith in our belief of the ever after. Yes there are people who have had near death experiences that claim theyve seen heaven but we can't be certain of the validity of that. So I guess we hope there is something better....but really the alternative means we just die and never know the wiser. Sigh.... love the song by the way. x

If you want to know me, read my poetry, it's all in there. I am a mother of three sons (my finest moments) a sister, a survivor and a little bit crazy. I lost my beloved sister to suicide, so you'll.. more..
