CONFLICT OF THE AGES

Are we mortal or not?

Will we live forever?  In everlasting sought?

As a youthful farmhand, did not want eternity,

I am sure that made a big difference in what God had  for me!

.

.

It is either set or is not, we will live forever or not!

Either a line, no ending, or one big fat d o t!

As when younger, a  farmhand drudge, slavery the word!

“Rest from your hard labor,”  This we never heard!

.

.

Convince me, is there a Heaven?  A never-ending Hell?

Or do we, like, face forever this farming in the dell?

As a youthful, like, farmhand I thought never interest me!

Spite of what that boss man said, just plain  ole’ drudgery!

.

.

Sure, if I had to face it, the farm or  Army life,

And so I joined the Army!  Forgot all that farming strife!

Diversity in the training, sure, delighting in its worth,

Living with fellow trainees of interest just me dirth!

.

.

“Boot Camp”  ending, sure, resisting the Cadre call.

I voted  self  for furtherance of the Army pull.

Then the Paratroops.   How about this new interest, contained

A challenge for certain, just how, could not refrain!

.

.

Paratroop training only four weeks.  What?  Like, a continuation

Of the longer Army structuring, but the situation

Spelled dropping from the clouds in a parachute.

Definitely not to be considered , like, a  dilute–

,

,

Or a furtherance of normalcy.  No definitely

Not the normal thing to do each day, like, consistently!

With the  end in view, like, a jump in combat!

Sure, I had a wonderful time  living with that!

.

.

Everlasting life!  Of course, in Heaven preferred!

A most  pleasurable thought to be with The Lord!

Forever!  Forever as He is the essence of real pure Life!

Living  everlastingly!  What?  No more strife!
