Humans Need A Hereafter. - Poem by S.zaynub Kamoonpuri

Life would
be
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
chilhood'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.

    Of course, we have no way of knowing what comes after death. Religious belief, however, becomes so convincing to people, they act as if faith is factual and the soul's immortality and the palatial paradise you cited are guaranteed. That's still faith, not proof. You made a list of all of the injustices, suffering, etc. life after death would redress. Why do these things have to happen in the first place? Why not Paradise Now? Enough said! (Report) Reply

    I have to admit I did find this poem interesting despite the fact I'm not a religious type. However it does make a fair point. Sometimes you need to believe in something in order to keep going. Stay strong (Report) Reply

    An enjoyable piece; appreciated the message; nicely conceived.

    P.S. In terms of critiquing, I'm not crazy about the formatting and lack of punctuation- for me, it was a distraction from a thought-provoking poem. (Report) Reply

    Amen to your prayer Zaynub, from life to the life hereafter, from time to eternity, the journey is an expected one and the abode there will be permanent one, I see there is a positive approach in your deep though simple poem, if we spend time in doing good deeds with good intentions, there's nothing to fear in that long and permanent journey! Congrats Zaynub for writing a strong poem...the style is different and flowing, increasing the curiosity of the reader to see what next! ! ! Good job! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Reincarnation theory/ theory of re-birth as per the hindu scripture is established one. Though one does not know what happens after death, yet the past karmas/action in any yoni/form do play a part in one's next birth out of 84 lakhs yonies/specices. The human form is the ultimate form of the cycle of birth. But if the action of a human is satanic, one has to undergo cycle of re-births again otherwise he/she attains nirvaana.(merging with GOD and no more births) .Why do we suffer or why do we enjoy? It depends on how have we conducted ourselves in the past life. After reading your lovely poem twice, its last two lines prompted me to write my views. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Thank you for your positive comment on my love poem. I have just read your piece while listening to the nice accompanying music and although I am an agnostic I found it quite convincing, as well a beautiful. If as you say a belief in an afterlife is a solace for many people, why not have one? It might be true after all. Personally I have had one or two very lucky escapes recently which make me think there might be a divine being protecting me for some reason. My only doubt is whether your separation of the poems's words into such short lines perhaps makes it more difficult to appreciate your rhymes. (Report) Reply
