Questions, Questions!

Are you
ready to meet your maker?

I heard
the voice say,

IT gave
me quite a shock

so I
didn’t answer straight away,

It made
me think and ponder

about the
things I’d yet to do

so, I
still held my tongue,

well
really, wouldn’t you?

Are you
ready, the voice repeated,

and I
wondered at the tone,

it
sounded almost angry,

but I was
thinking about what I’d done,

who I’d
met and where I’d been

If I was
happy deep inside,

had I
lived up to my potential?

or had my
personal dreams just died?

The voice
had gone quite silent,

no easy
answer could I give,

Was I
asking myself the question,

based on
how I chose to live?

Was I
happy with the paths I’d taken,

At the
end would I regret and sigh?

Or would
I turn about and scarper,

‘cos I want to live, I don’t want to die!!.

  5. "Would I regret and sigh" I think you would not. Your words speak of that which be the question, that has not an answer. When upon that far shore we walk; regret will be not apart. What is will be the fond memories of who and what we are….Peace to YouMark
