Down the Road

EER_0639

 

At the end of the road when my life is done

What will I find will there be one

Who will meet me there at the pearly gates

With hands outstretched no need to wait

Will he be tall short fat or thin

When he sees me will he break out with a grin

Funny to me how we fantasize

Making God like us as we rationalize

Dreaming that descriptions of hands and face

Describe a reality that has no race

Metaphors become reality as we describe our God

Forgetting he is Spirit and that would be odd

For a Spirit has no shape, no hands to hold tight

Only a presence of the purest light

So whether our God is he she or it

The God we meet will probably not fit

The idea we have in the back of our mind

Won’t it be interesting what we will find

At the end of the road

    One may not find as expected but it is more of getting the solace sought after through life. Our existence ought to have been accepted upon reckoning in the afterlife! Thoughtful thoughts Dwight!

  2. Cute child like poem.
    Interestingly, it is a theological treatise:
    Yahweh revealed himself often in body form: Theophanies
    Yahweh incarnated in Jesus
    Vishnu incarnated many times
    Some religions (most sects of Islam) forbid thinking of theophanies or incarnations.
    Some (Mormons) have their god as an actual human
    Some other Christians see a bodily resurrection with our bodies hanging with an embodied god.
    So many opinions!
