Unanswerable Questions. - Poem by Reginald Walker

Will I go to heaven or hell when I finally die?
Will I see things I always hoped to see?
Or will life turn out to be
Just a part of someone’s fantasy?
These are the things I wonder about
As I approach the last days of my life.

Who will be there to close my eyes
As I take my last breath?
Will anyone remember the things I did?
Or will they rejoice at the news of my death?
These are the things I wonder about
As I approach the last days of my life.

Did I believe the right things?
Did I say the right prayers?
Did I act, as God wanted me to?
Or did I just play by my own rules.
These are the things I wonder about
As I approach the last days of my life.

Will I ever get the right answers?
Will the questions continue to come to me?
Are there any right answers?
Or will I have to die just to see?
These are the things I wonder about
As I approach the last days of my life.
