Lifes Ending Bell - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

What if death was just the end
and there was nothing more,
Would you still be full of fear,
when the reaper knocks upon your door?
What if there was no heaven;
what if there was no hell?
Would you still dread the ringing,
of lifes ending bell?
For if death is just the end
and not rather a begining;
And there is no prize in death
but rather lifes only ending;
And there's nothing more in life,
for which we may receive,
Then all our faith is just in vain
and this I cant beleive!
If a life thats lived for Christ
is a life lived in vain;
And there is no glory
in death that we can claim.
Then the Christian life we lived
would be nothing more then a lie,
Then in death we should be sad,
many tears we should cry!
But this is not the case my friend,
for in death glory we receive,
Because we love Jesus christ
and his promises we beleive.
For I would rather live my life for Christ
and find out there is no heaven or hell;
Then live my life for Saten, and find out there is,
at lifes ending bell.

    This is all very well said
    Saten once nice as satin
    No rebirth fear, go for Nirvana!
