How Will Yours End?

This is just on the spur of the moment kind of thing and won't stop the concluding part of my earlier post "What Is Love?".
I just witnessed a near fatal accident, watched in horror as the vehicles skidded off the road and hitting anything in their path.
I thanked God for sparing the lives of the passengers even as the buses were mangled beyond recognition. As i'm home now recounting the number of ghastly motor accidents that happened last year's December, i wondered what it will be like to die in an accident? That is not my portion!


Come forth now o death
That you my assailant be put to shame
Your hands have no grip, your fangs shall not taste my blood
For from afar, you shall watch as stream of peace
Perfect peace flow like river thru my veins and across my nerves
And at the appointed time
My breath will still like mountain in winter and smoulders like mist in the morning sun
Then shall my soul be still in bliss in beholding beauty in the world of forms


That's how my life will end. How will yours end?

@Oyin
There are two sides to every coin. If we can talk about life, we can talk about death. It's nothing to be worried about.


@Incoherent
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a most wonderful new year?

Hmmm who am I to say how I will end. I just want God to make it as easy as I came. And this will be when I am a centurion o. Not now.

Dying while sleeping aint bad cos u r in a deep state already but all the painful deaths are so gruesome or shd I say all the gruesome deaths are so painful

Thank God for his mercies and for sparing your life and ours as well to see a new year. I believe our lives are ordained by God and they'll end when he chooses and not how the devil (or any bagger for that matter) decides. It's well bro. Happy New Year. Nice poem by the way. Loved it. 2009 is gonna be a wonderful year. Of that i'm very sure.

I will die in whatsoever manner serves His purpose for me best. Be it as a martyr, in a fight, or on my bed. He doesn't promise us a romantic death...but I do know it cannot be a death without purpose.

Thanks for stopping by my blog

its funny how when it comes to death, we push the thought further back in our minds....
sometimes i seat to think what my death would be like, but then i jolt myself back to reality, i'd rather dwell on happy thoughts.

hopefully it wouldnt be a fatal one, but a nice peaceful one after a well lived and fufiled life.


have a blessed year!

Writefreak said...

Lovely post!

My life will definitely end well and peacefully too...at a ripe old age!

Accidents are definitely awful!

On my 114th birthday, in my sleep....with a huge smile on my face.

For real I don’t want to talk about my death…

I want to live my life to the fullest…I don’t care how it ends as long as I have done as much good as I can possibly do in the time I have here.

Afrobabe said...

Happy new year..

Hmmm I dont even want to think about death right now..but if I have a choice I wnt it at the age of 100...no pain, peaceful with all my children and grandchildren sitting around hoping I left them some thing...lol

Emeka Amakeze said...

@Oyin
I am not mad with you.


@Doug
I pray your death will have a divine purpose.


@Fantasy Queen
You're right my Queen but we need to talk about it. Its an everyday thing and we should face it without fear.


@Write Freak
Thanks a lot. I can't agree better.


@Vera Ezimora
Hmmmm? 114 years? You have the right to ask for that.


@Angel
I guess an Angel will always be an Angel. Let nothing stop you from doing all the good you can.


@Afrobabe
Living up to 100 will always have a way of making you think about death.


@All
I'm pretty glad the grace of God saw us through to this year.
