One day I'll die and sometimes I want to

By Gale Acuff

One day I'll die and sometimes I want to

know exactly when that will happen so
I can prepare myself but my teacher
says No, Gale, such knowledge is God's alone
and even if you knew what He knows you
would be so afraid of your approaching
doom that you couldn't function at all
I said Yes ma'am, thank you for clearing that
, not that she really did -- sometimes I
know the why of something but not the point
of it and maybe that's the Big Question
even if to be precise I didn't
ask one, that's called a technicality
and one day I'll be free of all of them
and in the Afterlife where I can rest.
