A poem about my belief in the hereafter. How I hope to end my days on earth.

I Believe

I believe in life eternal

Free from all my earthly craves

My soul flying free to heaven

When my body is in its grave

Here on earth the soul is tested

Into the fire the pain to feel

As we lose our life's companions

And death our brothers it does steal

Yet our souls they must be steadfast

Growing with each blow that lands

Learning why we first must suffer

Before we walk on Heavens sands

Make not gods from lust and money

Worship not the golden chain

Forget what the mirror tells you

Then you'll have a lot to gain

Be at peace with all around you

Love the stranger as your own

Wake each day to make a difference

In the world that we call home
