Death A Door Opening Into Perfection Poem by Terence George Craddock (Afterglows Echoes Of Starlight)

Death A Door Opening Into Perfection

Rating: 4.7


with dissipating life breaths
with pale shadow breaths
until the mirror remains clear glass;
until heat breath moisture
no longer wings our words
up into heaven blessed waiting peace;
when pure mind soul are released
from fading waiting body expiring...

when our freedom soul ascends
departing depleted wasted body spent
then is the ultimate mercy in peace sent;
death is but the door opening into perfection
a release for the beautiful the kind the just
a release from life splinter flesh corruption;

death for some is a release from agony, many face agony before their death, cultures individuals have differing opinions, different belief systems regarding death; few attain a perceived perfect death, a perfect death is an inner peace within self, the belief perhaps that our life was fruitful, attained our goals provided for loved ones; which lives values are worth living has many judges, the love we bequeath bestow upon others is one touchstone; death is finality or eternity death will judge

I hope you are right and that 'death is a door opening into perfection'. You express optimism-better than despair and complete annihilation when you die.

'until the mirror remains clear glass' a reference to a test for death in an earlier era, I had never seen anone write this, the idea intrigued.

A release for some may prove a trap for others. Perhaps so many fear death, or convince themselves they can evade the inevitable is precisely, ironically, because they have never tasted ethics.

The last three lines convey an extraordinary understanding of temporal human life. Death is a release for the beautiful and the just to escape the turmoils of corrupt life.
