11/18 Poem: Deadly Assurance


The only thing certain
Is that we will die
The only real freedom
Is choosing our why

Will we die from risk
When chasing a thrill
Or run out the clock
Til time makes its kill

Or is there a third way
An unforeseen option
Where we see death as
Consummating adoption

If life’s highest glory
Is knowing our Master
The worst that can happen
Is getting there faster

The end of the story
Tells why it began
Joy comes from knowing
Our part in His plan

So death is not scary
In fact, it’s our friend
For this we are certain
Christ is our true end
