An Offering to the Wind – A Poem
by Ama Danesi.
Girl in boots – alone, unafraid.
Awaiting the chariot sure, delicate
neck arched, an offering to the wind.
Surprisingly, the checklist and criteria to get in, is rather unimpressive.. it’s almost too easy:
1. Cowardly and Fearful
5. Sexually Immoral
This is the revelation – its extremely low standards means you only need ONE attribute to qualify and be ushered in. I used to think that only sin-crazed maniacs got a specially reserved personal hearth in hell, also described as a place of eternal torment, a burning lake of fire and brimstone, the belly of the earth.
Imagine drowning in a sea of volcanos, furnaces of flaming lava and hot vapor eruptions eternally timed to guarantee extreme misery, in a pit made for fallen angels, demons and not you.
In there cloaked in suffocating darkness – your dry and parched throats strained from the blood curdling screams of pain and terror in the realization that, in exercising God given free will, you made this choice and any hope of relief for your burning flesh and unquenchable thirst is forever lost in this second and last death.
The place of the damned…filled with the unimaginable stench of fear and putrid sweat from the heat that melts even the staunchest of hearts. Unless you are certain that someone other than Jesus, made the big blue sky, we all will acknowledge that He is Lord….EVERYONE will. In the game-show of life, it’s too late to give the answer after the buzzer sounds…I know, I really should say “trumpet”, but you get the idea.
Here and now, while you still have a choice, check the venue of the party on that invitation card you have accepted into your heart, will there be a party over there? You bet, there was a party when I said my “yes” and the Bible states that there’s a party in heaven,when we decide to accept God’s invitation to come home.
Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard nor can our finite minds imagine what God has planned for those who love Him.
Whew! I made it…This time I scored an invite to the right party on the best side of the Heavens and all I had to do was believe….that too, was quite easy.
Just Say Yes, God does the rest.
