Alpha And The Omega - Poem by ROGEL FRANCIS SORIOSO

Death could come in any sizes, shape and form
It could be terrorism, disease or a raging storm
For the author of life is also the author of death of his people
Like the birth of an innocent child or nine eleven for example
For he is the Alpha and the Omega of everything
And without his presence life would mean nothing
Its almost absurd trying to reason out with death
To make such negotiations just to save our breath
Like most questions we try to ask and try to ponder
Is there a glamorous reason behind death I wonder
To leave behind the people we love and cherish
To say our last and final goodbye as we perish
For death has a certain duty and obligation to God and to us all
Once you are being called your value becomes decreasingly small
For God doesn't distinguish between the young and the old
He would take the most precious person you are trying to hold
We cry over the love ones we had lost today
They're already gone and we can't make them stay
So should death be condemned or even appreciated
For there are things you should know to be illuminated
Death signifies that our work and service here is done
For even though you no longer breathe you were never gone
It means that you are being called by God to another mission
Losing your life was never your choice but by God's decision
For you had accomplished your task according to plan and time
So now God is looking at his options to take you by diseases or crime
Life is a celebration and death means mourning
But like the daily cycle there is night and morning
We should not anguish over death as a permanent event
For there are things that God created and we can't prevent
Wherever there is death it means there is a new beginning
And just like our faith that's solid rock we never stop believing
Just like the death of some beliefs, vision, fashion and culture
There will be more answers to be found in the near future
For death was never only about diseases, disasters, accident or natural cause
It also includes killings, murders and terrorism at a certain clause
Death is an entity that roams every corners of earth
Taking the lives of others even before their birth
A tribute to Abraham Lincoln
