The Final Walk - Poem by Melvina Germain

Fearing God’s decision,
pondering ones deliverance.
You ask yourself, did I live my life well,
was I fair to lonely suffering souls.
Did I extend a hand of generosity.

Much time to think while taking that
final walk through the valley of death.
Doth an angel take your side, or
will a demon of darkness forever be your guide.

Thoughts remain suspended
in the landscape of your mind.
Convinced time is of the essence,
wondering is it too late to make a change.
Though fear is prevalent,
it is freedom one wishes to gain.

    Darkness or light, sun or shadows, each day is a gift, We pass through this world only once, but what we do with our days affects eternity. Very wise words, Melvina.

    Love,

    Sandra

    Fighting hard against all odds, mankind is destined to live divinely. When the final walk visits us, then we will be made known of our deeds and weight of grace and punishment. Nice verses to ponder. Perfect score for you. (Report) Reply

    Melvina, this made one think of all the things you want to do in the little time we have. Thanks for the jolt in the arm which I need from time to time. A timely reminder for me to try and do all the things I keep putting off until tomorrow as today always seems to full of things to do. Top Marks from me and thanks for sharing it my friend.
