After Death (Final Reward) - Poem by Randy McClave
When this life of mine is over
And then I will go to my eternal rest
What about my accomplishments here on earth
Will they all be remembered, and will I feel blessed.
And what about the money that I had saved and I hid
And the property and material objects that I owned
Will they all be left behind or will they all be given away
And my high status here on earth, will I be dethroned.
Maybe the money that I had it won't mean anything
And the women that I knew they will also be in the past
But, the suffering and sadness of the poor that I had ignored
I wonder? if that will be on my resume and would it last.
Should I be scared if I happen to meet any of the poor and the hungry
But now as I think? they will now be happy as they will be fed
I wonder if they will remember that I had scoffed them all
Maybe now though, they all will be satisfied since they are dead.
I wonder what clothes in Heaven that I will have to wear
Or will I have to wear what everyone else is wearing
And will we all be the same color there, can I discriminate
But, of course these are just thoughts of mine that I am airing.
Up in heaven will they give me any control or power
As I had achieved that while I lived here upon this earth
I controlled many men’s lives and also their destinies
If only in Heaven they would allow my lifestyle and my net-worth.
I wonder if now, if I started giving money to some churches
Maybe then in heaven I would be allowed to become a landlord
If so, I wonder what gift of money or property I would be presented
When I go to heaven, for my final and ultimate reward.
