Who Am I?

by Marvellous   Nov 21, 2016


But ours is a faith that makes free
Not from sanity, but distress
Heaven's protocol to sound health
The surest path to genuine wealth

It's the umbrella of mercy
Where forgiveness, we breathe as air
A community of sound minds
Abode of gems, shinning their lights

We're heaven's gift to planet Earth
God's best-selling asset on ground
The worth of a Christ-like is Life
For same your cash, can never buy

We're one family, bound in love
Basking in euphoria of joy
Patriarchs of faith, by endurance
Peace-patients of the universe

Will you miss me, when it's over?
Does my exit bring tears or joy?
Did I leave you, better or worse?
Can you please now tell, Who am I?

    So let me state, this is a great piece.
    I see You have it under Life & Society..
    But yet I feel a lot of possible religion in this piece.

    "But ours is a faith that makes free
    Not from sanity, but distress
    Heaven's protocol to sound health
    The surest path to genuine wealth"

    First Stanza: I feel like this stanza is explaining the purpose and reward for the faith it is describing. It is true the Greatest wealth in life if good health, Mental & physical.

    "It's the umbrella of mercy
    Where forgiveness, we breathe as air
    A community of sound minds
    Abode of gems, shinning their lights"

    Second Stanza: As most religions and believes the core value is Forgiveness. It rejuvenates ones soul, and shines a glorious light onto those often plagued with darkness.
    I like the way this was worded.

    "We're heaven's gift to planet Earth
    God's best-selling asset on ground
    The worth of a Christ-like is Life
    For same your cash, can never buy"

    Third Stanza: We created in the image of Christ, his children. Should live a life in his image.. I read this as a really interesting way to say in a world of consumerism, You can't buy your way into heaven.

    "We're one family, bound in love
    Basking in euphoria of joy
    Patriarchs of faith, by endurance
    Peace-patients of the universe"

    Four Stanza: All of us one family; Gods children. Should embrace and share acceptance of each other.

    "Will you miss me, when it's over?
    Does my exit bring tears or joy?
    Did I leave you, better or worse?
    Can you please now tell, Who am I?"

    Final Stanza: Some of life's greatest questions.. Will You be missed, and for what? Did You make a difference?
    A the end of this Journey.. Who are You really?

    I love that You ended this with questions.
    Powerful questions no less... I think each of us have these questions, and in the end are lucky to have even a few answers to them before death...

    Sorry for the extremely long comment, I just really wanted to break down and try to understand the piece. I myself am not religious, though I have varying levels in interest in multiply religions and different beliefs.

    I think overall this is a wonderful write, and a enjoyable read. 5.
