“The After and Life” By Kombo Saumu
My chest is tight
From imagining my body crushed under earth
And the full knowledge that this body can rot for decades
Only to be cast into hell or heaven
I dread for my corpse.
Scorching hot high molten hell fire
Smelting my soul forever in the hereafter
For drinking in life…
One more shot.
A mirror of life
And, with no fear
For an after
You have prior knowledge,
Hence the feeling
You know what to
For you spent
It could also be
An unending, dark, eternal
Yet it is easier
If we just thought of
