Will The Last Instalment Be Painful? - Poem by frank mestre

Will the last installment be painful?

Will we ever be ready?
It’s all seems a trifle heady
When that final curtain falls
When our creator finally calls

What will it feel like?
To know that hour is within strike
Will questions arise?
Will you become finally wise?

Are you ready to go?
Not sure I want to know
To say your good byes
To view the pain and cries

Do you look back, regress
Study your life, think what a mess
Or revert back to childhood, a lad.
Look around and think it’s your dad?

Is it a terrifying experience
Or comforting, spiritual, a trance
Do you look to God in your final hour
Say your Hail Mary or the Our Father prayer?

Do you fight to the very end
Or give in and think, this is the trend
Are you brave and talk and chat
Discuss the funeral arrangements as a matter of fact?

As Life. Death is not a rehearsal
When it arrives it’s a first call
Another experience, another enlightment
The difference is it’s your last installment.
