'' Death Could Be But A Transition '' - Poem by Bri Mar

I'm about to die,
So I will not lie,
It's with a feeling of trepidation,
Death you cannot quantify,
Will it be nothingness or perhaps elation.

I cannot grieve,
Never did believe,
The concept of a Heaven or Hell,
The past I know you cannot retrieve,
Is there a future? Who can tell.

Though I questioned God,
Him I never did laud,
As a subject it's too far fetched,
The human mind can be really odd,
Reality we tend to have stretched.

Is there an afterlife,
Where there is no strife,
Ruled by a being supreme,
I'd hate to think I would meet my ex-wife,
What a nightmarish dream.

Are we in human form,
Where we all conform,
To the one we call the creator,
Are peace and harmony always the norm?
Who or what is a fabricator.

As I pass over,
Will the angels hover,
Awaiting to carry me away,
Will I be like the pig in clover,
Loving each and every other day.

Or will I just go,
Where I won't even know,
Who, what, why, when, where and how,
Nothing itself won't come as a blow,
As there's nothing I cannot allow.

Of atoms we're made,
So it has to be said,
It's a fact they don't ever perish,
If as stated they do not degrade,
Surely that's something to cherish.

I can live in hope,
But with death I'll cope,
As I now face decomposition,
I'll leave myself with plenty of scope,

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Why fear what we don't know, live life for all it is worth and live for now, life as we term it is indeed short.
