Will You Pray Or Make Excuses?

Time runs

He levitates towards the sky.

Some say he shy,

but yet arms are wide

ready to make a scarfice.

Legs stretched out far apart

He is spry

Does he do gymnastics

to keep his body active?

Do you wonder how he keeps his mind active?

Does he read the bible?

Or does he make excuses?

What do you think his excuse is?

Do you want a hint?

Well here it is.

You see the clock?

The clock stopped

but time never stops as

long as we live


as long as we live.

But nothing last forever so time won’t tick any longer.

So souls leave human bodies

since souls remain forever

while bodies get buried.

Every human is different but after life,

we receive judgment.

The sky opens up for worthy souls

to enter the kingdom of heaven

but only a few will seek it.

Lord accepts a few souls

then close the gates

on the large crowd of souls

surrounding the gates.

Souls banging on the gates saying

“Let me in” Lord says

“I don’t have time to let anybody else in”

This boy in the pic

is one of the ones that didn’t make it.

While living his soul needed saving

Parents beg him to go to church

but his parents, he kept ignoring.

When stressed out, instead of praying he kept smoking.

When he got his girlfriend pregnant,

instead of telling his parents

he forced his girlfriend to get an abortion.

Whenever he sinned, never asked for forgiveness.

So everytime

when his parents asked him

if he thanked the Lord this morning

for winning

the gold trophy in gymnastics, he said

” I forgot”

When his parents asked him

“when do you plan on going back to church?”

He said

” I don’t know, I’m grown, I don’t have time, I got school and gymnastics”


The Lesson In This Poem

Life is temporary

so be careful how you live it.

Time is constant like a heartbeat

but they both will stop eventually.

Prayer takes a little more than second.

Lord never asks for perfection

but he wants us to seek forgiveness

for sinning.

So remember everyday you don’t pray

and make excuses

lord is always watching.

One day closer

until your heart

will stop beating

and eventually time will stop ticking.

We have many paths to take

when we live each day

but the many paths

will lead to only two final destinations.

So will find time to pray

or will you make excuses?
