Something At The Back Of Your Mind. Poem by willow moon pearce

Something At The Back Of Your Mind.

Rating: 4.3


If I had done something wonderful in my life
Or left a book with my name in print
Would that be my immortality?

Or is immortality a done deal
If you believe in Christ
Then where are the rules?

Kindness, love and an attitude
That would please Christ
Surely that is the answer?

Man interferes and proposes
A complete turn
Even if there has been murder
Theft or a lapse in the ten
Commandments
Be born again
What is that?

In my life I have learnt
And seen people savaged
By corruption and fear

In the next life will
All of us be there?
Good or bad?
The holocaust survivor
And the men that sent
Thousands to their death?

It is the eternal question.
