Hello Life - Poem by Curtisj Johnson
By Curtis Johnson
O death, I understand you, and I know your purpose all to well.
I know the source of your beginning; and I also know where you dwell.
O death, it’s not your plan, and certainly not your pleasure to make things swell.
I am aware, and exceptions are few; all of us have appointments with you.
Some die young and others die old, but many shall revive and become new.
Even your ruler ship shall someday end, and a new day for everyone will begin.
All of creation feels and anticipate a new reign, but no one knows exactly when.
But O death, do not be proud that you bring so many to your place of darkness.
You also have a day of reckoning, and you too will be doomed into utter darkness.
But until then, May we take the life we’ve been given and remember, we are forgiven.
There’s never the need to get busy dying, but there is always time to get busy living.
So let the light of life given to you shine bright and bold!
Let the truth break forth, and forget the lies you’ve been told! !
Let the poor declare himself to be rich! ! !
Let the weak declare himself to be strong! ! ! !
Let the timid and fearful be afraid no more! ! ! ! !
Dare to say, “I shall live and not die! ”
“I shall be filled with laughter and not cry”.
Let us shout from the debts of our souls and say,
“Hello life, here we are from the lowly dust! ”
“But we were made for living; not for rot and rust! ”
Christ died for all of us, and in Him we put our trust! ”
