This poem is dedicated to my youngest brother and was read at his funeral.
Your honest critique as to content and style would be greatly appreciated.
Oh soul, what joyful bliss that you will know,
When from this earthen prison you are freed.
Prevented not by fleshly chains to go,
And seek the one who ransomed you by deed.
Lo Satan hath the victory no more,
When from this carnal fortress you depart.
No more to fight the conflict raging sore,
Upon the battlefield of mind and heart.
Go praise the Lord, my soul with all your might,
For now your earthly chains are broke in twain.
Released by God to make your heavenward flight,
To mansions high above this sin cursed plane.
So spread your wings, my soul, and take to flight,
And seek the one whose love is thy delight.
