Religion warns that afterlife is more
important than this life of flesh and bone.
Arguably, the proof of this, before
the death of men, is never to be known.
The consciousness of Men-kind while alive
is muddied by their fears and greed and pride.
Until his final breath, a man should strive
to liberate that Angel trapped inside,
because one's life is like a work of art
whose artist, by his own creative hands
draws color from the pallette of his heart
and crafts that finest man his soul demands,
the destiny of which, perhaps, in sum
is seed for an existence yet to come.
