The Corridor To The Next Reward
Somebody close to you suddenly dies
Then it makes you wonder
Is there a God above our cloudy skies?
Somewhere down under?
You’re supposed to fervently ponder these things
On a purely spiritual level
Use your faith and with the courage it brings
Hell can boast “it has given you hell”
Using death to make you bitter
Heavenly hosts toast a fond farewell…
…And ask you to reconsider
For to be absent in the body
Is to be present with one’s Lord
Death is just a corridor
That leads to the ...
I went to a funeral today
Fear died and we buried it six feet deep
Everyone cheered nobody cried
And with fear
Resting in peace – now I can sleep
No, there wasn’t a eulogy
Our thoughts about fear were not uttered
