I no long want to know the other side
to penetrate the omnipresent rain
and find beyond, a greenery again
and walk with those who long ago have died
There is no strength in vain conjectures
but the weak response of not knowing;
(Better look alive where one is going!)
be guided by the present, earthly vectors.
And by Jesus’ words which reassure
"This day you’ll be with me in paradise";
where evil is no more, nor vice
where friendship in this life endures
Trust in God! And stand your ground!
No greater certainty than God is found.
