My mind no longer sees age
As a point to refrain from listening
I wish not to become embittered
Hostile toward that which my life is
Negativity, to me, is so unfruitful
In these remaining of my days
My embattlement now is surviving
For I can see that more days are there
Behind me than I can see ahead
This does not worry me
Nor should it ever be so
For my Lord has ever held me
Close to him for my safety sake
I shall cling to him always
As he restoreth my soul
My body shall age continually
Until the day it will no more
And on that day, fear not for me
For I am blessed immensely
Knowing that in Heaven shall I reside
This body shall fade, returning
To the earth from whence it came
My soul shall live forever
Not only in Heaven, but in hearts
For in the hearts of my loved ones
Shall I exist until their turn has come
When we shall then meet
In that wondrous city of God
No, my mind is no longer concerned
With age and the things I can not change
But those which I can
Demonstrative to my fellow man



Authors comments:
I am very fond of this work because I was able to put into words how I sometimes feel and the sense of how temporary life on Earth actually is. There are many Biblical lines used here and most of you know them, but there is a line in the poem that comes from a movie, not an exact quote, but very close. The theme is a very good one as it works very well here. I am curous to see if anyone knows which line and which movie. I'll give you a hint: It is from one of the Star Trek films (for those who enjoy science-fiction). Anyone care to guess? I think there is beauty in vision and words surrounding us daily, we just have to look and listen. I thank God for opening my eyes and allowing me this gift.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This was so good! The "age thing" does come along and give me a little nip now and then. But this excellent poem really did put all things into perspective. Interestingly enough, the style and feel of it was actually a little reminiscent of Ecclesiastes. Those first five lines just caught my attention straight away. Definitely well done, in my opinion.
