by Peter the Poet © 2023

I feel the tightness in my chest
This one is different than the rest,
I think that the time is approaching to go,
Leave the World's Dog and Pony show.

What's in my mind the spirit or flesh,
Will I get it right before death's caress,
I don't have long to choose that's sure,
Is there oil in my lamp or do I need more?

Is there un-confessed sin dragging me down,
Will I be an eternal prisoner or wear a crown,
Do I know the Lord Jesus as King of my heart,
Or did I go my own way and cause him to depart?

There are no do overs, no second dance,
Only one life to live so don't waste your chance,
Where will you spend your Eternal rest,
Will you be accursed, or will you be blessed?

These are not thoughts for the time of your end,
You'd best be prepared without bridges to mend,
Keep your accounts short for God's mercy is long,
Go out with Grace and a worthy Swan Song.
