At The End Of Our Days

by | May 10, 2011 | Poetry | 0 comments

Thus, at the end of days the man is asked…
“Give your account for those things you have done
To leave the world better for everyone.
What have you done as measured to the task?”

“Have you misfeigned with deeds of vanity,
Envy, selfishness or of avarice?
Or have you acted with self-sacrifice…
And altruism and humility?”

“Were you e’er wrought with vengeance and vile spite?
Or did you seek with honour and virtue
Compassion and forgiveness to imbue…
And comfort well the souls of those in plight?”

“And have you free from guilt or shame thereof…
Besprent the world with peacefulness and love?”
