“Inquiry for the Nigh-Dead”

Will you say your prayers or curses when you’re nigh-dead?
Will you tell me how free you lived your life?
What god has clouded your mind to live a sinful way?
What’s your heart telling you as your days reach an end?

When your breaths have come to speak of constant pain,
What’s your reason to keep your heart beating
If life is without meaning and existence without purpose?
Why are you holding on so tightly to your life?

Your fading strength, your fleeting days, your line nearly cut,
Hearing whispers of Death’s breath in the silence of the night.
Have you any hope left in that broken frame of yours anymore?
Would a miracle change your mind or would you fall to routine fast?

If the answers we’ve given don’t satisfy, your thrist is for the wrong
And maybe you’ll realize that before your final breath, I pray you will.
To walk again, to breathe with ease, healthy, what good would that be for you
If your soul’s unsaved and life is a day to day survival attempt? Do you know?
