A Poem I Wrote for those who fear death

Infinity Road by Alan McDougall
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
as I approach the infinite long dark night
I resist and resist it with all my might
I try and try to comprehend this end
to which all men must descend
---------------------------------------------------------------
is it a sleep that all must take?
or is it an eternal end that all must make?
I like to dream of awakening in light not dark
or a beautiful place to which all righteous men depart
-------------------------------------------------------------
do we sleep the sleep of forever?
or do we awake some other place altogether?
does this answer the ultimate question?
the final process of eternal redemption
------------------------------------------------------------------
then one glorious day from timeless sleep I awoke
and heard a beautiful and kind voice that sweetly spoke
faithful son at last you came to understand
exactly your place in this troubled land
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
you, my beloved, have truly never ceased to seek
the infinite destiny that in eternity for you I keep
so for you and your family, no eternal death await
because of your zeal to know your fate
(and therefore I never forsake)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
soon I bring you all to this holiest place
and it is there you will find your eternal place
you shall hear my sweet calling of you, out from your dark into the light
come, come into the holy glory to me the father of mighty might
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
walk in the cool of evening along sweet meadows you have never seen
smell the fragrances of grasses that have never been
strange golden streams of crystal water flow
as the blue glory of mighty skies above glow
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I searched the long forgotten memories in the attic of my mind
along the twisted channels the very depth soul of things I could not find
now last I see things so wonderful I knew from long ago
why did I puzzle over the enigma of not knowing what I did not know?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
out there far beyond the knowledge of any man now revealed
all the great mysteries of which my heart had appealed
why have I on this one thing so many years stalled?
the beauty and wonder of the infinite knowledge that should no be appalled
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
in joy, I walked on through the shade of great trees of eternal life
I hear the sweet forgotten voice that gave me everlasting life
in the beauty of this glorious place, the beauty new grasses do grow
as great rivers of transparent waters chuckle dance, sparkle, and flow

THANK YOU ! it is a very nice piece Alan...thank you for posting it!

Here is another poem of mine you might like?

why?
 
oh, beautiful planet earth! why? why? why?
 
oh terra, terra! I have loved you so,
           and sown your golden fields
                     with my songs of peace
 
I died to hear the music you should know
     by now...the song to bid your
            surging cease.
 
‘why, terra did you turn to hate?
       your blue and earthen hope
          of joy with greed
                       on your restless need for
                               death and war

Karen and another one you might also like?

By Alan McDougall (1994 South Africa)

Emmanuel's Light (Emmanuel is Almighty God)
 
 A poem by Alan McDougall 2001

Come fly towards majestic Orion with me
At great speed to our majestic god we flee
Through a great wide river, at last, we fly
Reaching out to a great light beyond the sky

Towards the sides of the north nearer and nearer we flew
Arrayed in spotless white robes given to you
Across a vast space of infinite night
Together clothed in glory we continued our flight

Oh great heavenly cavern so measureless to man
See before majestic Immanuel gather all who can
By mighty angels, through glorious clouds, we are driven
Closer and closer to gods mighty throne in the midst of heaven

At last to those mighty gates of heaven, we came
Baptized by El Shaddias light all were the same
In joyful luminous glory, all creation did sing
By that stupendous realm of the holy king

Bathed in beautiful grandeur of the one who had atoned
Countless multitudes stood quietly before Emmanuel enthroned
Joyfully before Emmanuel at last
Faces glowing by lakes colored by golden riven glass
Rejoicing at a life that would now never pass

A mighty voice shook all creation and rang through the air
Saying loud gather all around great EL Shaddais colossal chair
Look at god’s right a wonder is seen to rise
“Oh my beloved child, at last, I can give you your PRIZE”

(God has no grandchildren)

Karen did you notice that one of the poems of mine had almost the same wording as your signature "come fly with me"
""Come fly"" towards majestic Orion ""with me""
At great speed to our majestic god we flee
Through a great wide river, at last, we fly
Reaching out to a great light beyond the sky

  The poem is quite lovely. Nice comforting thoughts for many who worry about death. Many things are possible in death from non-existence to cosmic reincarnation to higher and higher worlds. All I am absolutely certain of is that  each of us is eternal in that a clone of us will always appear over and over again forever. Thus we will always be reborn upon this level of existence and it is possible that some of us may move up to higher existence. Yet none of us will suffer any future existence worse than what we have now.

What does  "Naked Science Forum God" mean? Is there a special forum about God?
