If I Haven't Died

If I Haven't Died

There were many things I thought important

when I was a child -

like walking and skipping and running wild -

but were they?


There were many things I thought important

in my middle years -

like career or sports and drinking beers -

but were they?


There are many things I think important

now later in life -

like health, adult diapers and dealing with strife -

but are they?


There will be many things I'll think important -

eternity's ever -

when hell has its fury - 'cause I thought I knew better.

Will they be...?


Do you get the picture now?  Do you understand -

of Heaven's importance and not this sin's wasteland?


But Jesus still waits, 'cause it's never too late -

(if I haven't died) -

to confess and repent - and be sanctified -

now.  Right now.
