We dread the immortal unknown,
Because we cannot grasp its reality.
God does not seek to pacify us,
Or destroy who we are,
But to clarify, purify and intensify
All that we were meant to be.

Well said about what is before us or what will be after this life Carina.

But as believers in God, we have the assurance that we will have a beautiful life after this life on earth in His bosom!

So let us not fear the immortal unknown!

That was my point, Amity. =)

I wouldn't have been able to guess what three words prompted this piece without knowing ahead of time, which is the real challenge of the exercise. Everything flowed so well, and the message is great. Thought-provoking poem. I enjoyed it.
