Forgetting We Shall Pass Away - Poem by Qiniso Mogale

Forgetting death awaits all
Forgetting this life is temporal
Forgetting that this world is not permanent
Forgetting to prepare for the spiritual world
Neglecting to prepare for the spiritual world
Forgetting that these physical bodies shall return to dust
Forgetting we shall all pass away.

Forgetting we shall all pass away
Investing only in material possessions
Accruing worldly wealth
Being pitifully spiritually poor
Feeding the earthly body and starving the spiritual man
Entertaining sin and scorning salvation
Heeding Satan and despising Christ.

Forgetting we shall all pass away
Forgetting we are on transit
Forgetting there is no repentance beyond the grave
Many passing on without having fulfilled God's purpose for their lives
Many passing on having run other people's races
Many passing on with regrets
Many passing on with excuses.

Forgetting we shall all pass away
Forgetting that life is too short
Many harbouring grudges
Many harbouring resentment.
