Death has no sting

23 April 2014, 13:12

There she wanders,

like the whole world is taking her under,

feeling heartbroken and mourning,

she feels like an outcast with tears dropping,

they say God cares,

but such tragedy is so severe,

she lost both parents in an accident,

and the life ahead seems like a big challenge,

She’s cursing the day she was born,

going back to the times of the great dragon

who was hurled down to earth and brought

sins and iniquity in the Garden of Eden,

because ever since then death became our

worse penalty through fault not of our own,

She’s looking up in the sky,

trying to find answers like, why do we have to die,

why didn’t God destroy Satan if he became a rebel,

because now the planet earth has become a place

where none of us wishes to dwell,

The powers that be – leading us to wars,

accidents, disease, poverty, deformities, and

the misery of HIV/AIDS, but she has forgotten that death

has no sting, because upon death we will all rest from our labors,

we are all assured of resurrection by our Saviour,

and death will be swallowed up in victory,

In heavenly paradise where angels soar - proclaiming glory,

Down with these as well

Now that the statue of Rhodes is on its way to the hinterland, one would suppose that it will only be a matter of time before all the other symbols of colonialism are destroyed as well. Read more...
