BEYOND


Beyond the meeting and the parting, we shall be soon
Beyond the sorrow and the grief, we shall be soon
Beyond the fear and the worry, we shall be soon
Beyond the corruption and the deception, we shall be soon
Beyond the sin and the wickedness, we shall be soon
Beyond the waiting and the longing, we shall be soon
Beyond the mortal and the perishable, we shall be soon
Beyond the oppression and the depression, we shall be soon
Beyond the gain and the loss, we shall be soon
Beyond the ever and the never we shall be soon
Beyond, Lord Jesus, come and take us soon

    He, Jesus said, that we 'shall be objects of hatred on account of his name', anything less and our motives are not pure as the world is fond of and loves what is its own. This poem is reminiscent of what he said.

    Powerful and infectuous.

    Be Well,
