THERE IS NOTHING FOR EVER COMPOSED 7 YEARS AGO

That we know nothing
beyond us
is forever more
than is known

this universe a vast domain
may be mundane who don't feel at home
so gently seek indulgence
here and now

What is beyond oblivion
of the unknown
let us not fear

as a passer by
revel in the known
as it passes by

none has ever come to stay
death is inscribed on the very day
birth becomes profound

mean no harm
seek wisdom of the known
with power of imagination
Thy kingdom may come

your picture lovedly. 'Tis true, that we do not know what lies beyond this mortal world, I don't think that it is anything to be afraid of. If there is a God, he is merciful to those that have tried to live a good life. If there isn't... Well, then there is nothing to be afraid of. The ones who do not care about living a good life, do not fear, because they do not believe that there will be a price to pay for living a life that is full of sin and hurt. I believe that there is something bigger than us and that we may move on to another plane, that will give us some reward. Other than that, we cannot say. Great mood of pondering lovedly! ~Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

for the most part, I agree with Gee. I also believe in past lives and karma. I really like these lines:

none has ever come to stay
death is inscribed on the very day
birth becomes profound

mean no harm
seek wisdom of the known
with power of imagination
Thy kingdom may come

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

I will soon convey
The excerpts of my final book
I have researched for over
six decades

Possibly my favorite stanza I've seen from you:

mean no harm
seek wisdom of the known
with power of imagination
Thy kingdom may come

Enjoyed this piece!
