Humans Need A Hereafter.

Poem By s.zaynab kamoonpuri

Life would
be
worthless
and
short
If this is
the only
dear life
we
have
Great
plans just
death can
abort
to be
useless
once you
met
your grave.

And for
those who
die young,
in
chilhood's
tender
ages
How short
and
incomplete
life
would be
How
unfair and
unlucky if
death's
the end
for them
Besides
life to the
fullest is
eternity.

What
about
those who
born
and die
poor
or those
born deaf,
blind or
lame
What if
they were
so
doomed
without
any cure
How
unlucky if
resurrection
never
came!

But a
belief that
there's a
life
after this
could be
of great
consolation
and solace
especially
to the
poor
handicapped,
the
shortlived
that they
could
make it up
under
heaven's
grace!

For the
good one
who is
born
blind
In heaven
shall he in
brighter
vision see
And the
goodly
one yet
who
has lost
his mind
will in the
afterlife
be as sane
as could be

The deaf
man with
his balance
of pious
acts
Only the
hereafter
would
compensate
what he
lacks

And that
godly one
born poor
and who
dies poor
could be
of the
richest at
heaven's
door

In this life
those
who've
been
saintly yet
unable to
talk
could
cheer up
to believe
what
heaven
has in
stock
For this
world can
be misery,
Heaven's
the place
to rock
In this
world at
times
you've
to let the
hawk
gawk
Knowing
your
tormentor
in
heaven
shall ye
mock

Thus for a
true
happy
ever
after
for an
abode of mirth and
laughter
Work
towards
thy
hereafter
A divine
place
devoid of
disaster!

O' God therefore after my death and demise
Do place me in a peaceful palatial paradise.

Comments about Humans Need A Hereafter.

Just read this one for the first time, Zaynab. I really like it. It is thoughtful and hopeful. Your staccato style here is well chosen too. These words came to my mind: “If in this life only we have hoped..., we are to be pitied more than anyone.” The resurrection to a better life is not just a hope but a guaranteed promise by one who cannot lie.
Your style is heart touching, you paint vivid picture of kife do beautifully.Your this piece of beautiful poetry is absolutely my dream.
Yes! Believing makes the difference! Lovely crafted poem!
Good read. Recoding the thought of all good people.
Of course, we have no way of knowing what comes after death. Religious belief, however, becomes so convincing to people, they act as if faith is factual and the soul's immortality and the palatial paradise you cited are guaranteed. That's still faith, not proof. You made a list of all of the injustices, suffering, etc. life after death would redress. Why do these things have to happen in the first place? Why not Paradise Now? Enough said!

I would've perhaps liked to swim in you O' sea
only if sharks and octopi didn't inhabit thee

Perhaps I would've swum and dived deeper in glee

O' heart, I wonder how you can store

while pumping away the liquid of life
