Immortality - Poem by Granville Holt

To rise above death and live forever?
Are we schooled by our humanity
Or vain to be one spirit so clever?

Shall we just live each day, 'Oh whatever? '
Because some, mark such thoughts as blasphemy,
To rise above death and live forever!

And what of Faith in a higher power?
Do we kneel to say our prayers faintly
Or vain, to be one spirit so clever?

Must we keep silent about soul murder
While Satan's own preaches it's vanity
To rise above death and live forever?

Does simple Fate tempt us as it were
And happenstance create our Destiny
Or vain, to be one spirit so clever?

Can we give selfless Love to another?
Will we shout aloud His grace boldly?
To rise above Death and live forever!
Or vain to be one spirit so clever?
