Red Shift

While still alive, it isn't likely that
you'll watch much work you've done on self applied.
You'll likely see ideals skinned and fried,
which leaves you goofy as a belfry bat.
Take heart, your earnest search for soaring light,
joined with a deep and ardent spirit will
corral and magnify all views until
you sense Life's truths, unutterably right.
Not wasted in this life, your exercise
here fills 'Souls's treasure trove'. It goes with you.
The Afterlife will need true students who
arrive with quick and understanding eyes.
Make no mistake, your next-world fate is real.
Slacking, you're chump to any poison deal.
Your next world fate is real, make no mistake.
and you don't want to watch, your own heart break.
