One Chance In A Lifetime - Poem by Gerry Legister

Everything reflect; black and white
Good and bad are in People and places,
Nature drifts in to bring intelligence
Darkness of mind is exposing by the light.

But what about time, faith; and science?
All those who had not repented of their sins
Will the individuals get a second chance?
In another world besides this realm.

The value of atonement is a new parchment,
To recover truth where our hearts wanted to go,
We perch edgy as birds do upon a narrow rim,
Lost in demise of time because we were too slow.

When technology is over and the script is written.
Careers are done transform into retirement,
Will mankind be given a second chance?
For all the consequences to make penitent.

Relief to live with choice or be force by iron rod,
Will that be heaven in a different kingdom?
Called Cosmopolitan celestial metropolis.
Govern by one indivisible force of God.

On earth power is bound as in heaven,
Omnipotent divinity replaced by humanism.
Not of flesh those citizens without a dream,
The rule of democracy gone within earth.

Fade into obscurity the measure of austerity.
Our frolicking contribute to destructive play,
Images from the past unveil in the future.
A choice we could take on this journey.

Stooping to ponder by silent reflection to pray.
And mourn with the reef given for new birth,
my dead body is desperately wanting to stay
But the change is coming with a newer breath.
