Mortality and Eternity

Photo: Mortality and Eternity

Tis, conversations can get quite versatile
when it comes to discussions of our own mortality.
Thoughts of eternity come to mind,
and then silence takes place,
bringing talks to a short lull.

Might I offer you my friend,
between me and you,
there really is no end.

All it takes is some observations,
quiet thoughts and prayer,
to realize-
You really shouldn't have any reservations.

Allow me to explain this thought and why...
On the most beautiful days, when you are out and about-
Have you ever really noticed and looked at the sky?

It is painted with rich warm colors-such a vivid display.
Their bursts of energy-
It's like they want to stand up and shout!

Have you ever experienced the tranquility of a sunrise or a sunset?
My friend, it's the only true peace
that can set you free...

Another thought, I shall bare to offer.
Is the love of children-
And their unconditional love
for their mother and father.

And the design of the human race.
How God made each and every one of us
with a different style and a different face.

Really-if you take a moment to understand...
God knew what he was doing-
You see-
We are all part of his plan!

Why question mortality?
Why doubt our chance at eternity?

Look at the world around me and you...
It was always God's unconditional love...
What else could be more true?

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
