Life Thoughts - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Just outside the door of the entrance to Brophy Chapel,
I sit and write and think no more on life.
It is too complicated - strained - slight.
The only way to a fuller life is through God,
but human nature makes it hard to stay in touch.
Pressures of everyday life seem to get into the way,
causing turmoil every step of our everlasting way.
Totally unprepared to live day to day,
I have prepared for death - I know it's way.
There is nothing to get ready or take with me - the
only preparation needed is just having lived a good
and decent life; it is enough to go on, passing
unafraid, and unattended to the grave.
