Afterword (By Flame)
I was obsessed with the world.
It offered me glitter not gold,
And I believed the lies it told.
Its promises were sweet;
It swayed my mind away from reality.
Its allure was strong;
It offered me life — but it was wrong.
Its emptiness drained my will to live;
I must be more than dust — just blowing in the wind.
It left me without purpose and hope — feeling somber.
Where did it get its strength — I wondered?
Why was I so in love?
I’m talking head over heels.
Why did I commit my way to Nothing
And its philosophical thrills?
But there was a historical figure they said was the Truth;
One who could free me from Nothing and its worldly noose.
They said His name is Jesus and that He is the way.
He offered me love, forgiveness, and grace.
I found true life in Him: said goodbye to the Nothing.
Eternal life I have gained: now end of discussion.
