The Graves: Our Death-Caves

Standard

We view death as something so far, and yet, it’s so very near.

It’s not until the Angel of Death comes that we’ve got it clear.

When he comes for our souls, we cannot even use a ruse.

Death is a battle that we are all divinely-destined to lose.

Welcome to your grave, it’s your final resting-place, it’s just like a cage.

Eventually, you’ll go there, no matter your life-stage, no matter your age.

It’s like “Tag”, ready or not, he will come; but, unlike a game, getting caught by him will not be any fun.

The pain that’s in store for you, if your body tries to cling to your soul, is something anyone would shun.

You cannot resist what you can’t control; once he takes hold, he’s never letting go.

Only Allah’s mercy will determine whether your soul leaves your body fast or slow.

Welcome to your grave, it’s your final resting-place, it’s just like a cage.

Eventually, you’ll go there, no matter your life-stage, no matter your age.

We will all be draped from our heads to our two feet, we will be covered with a three-sheeted clad.

The grave will be deep, dark, hollow, and sad; there is no bright beautiful clothes, no satin nor plaid.

Welcome to your grave, it’s your final resting-place, it’s just like a cage.

Eventually, you’ll go there, no matter your life-stage, no matter your age.

We will all eventually cross the other side, housed inside of a narrow cavern of a coffin.

So attached to this material-life are we, refusing to reflect upon this reality far too often.

It will be a cold, tight, dusty place, full of mold, this place is a reality that we all have to learn about.

There’s but one way in & yet no way back out, too late to return to life, you can’t scream or shout.

There will be a day and a time when we’ll all be committed to the ground.

So, worship Allah until you die & make your relationship with Him sound.

The Blue & Black Angels will question you.

Shame on you, if your answers not be true.
