If the Rapture comes tomorrow let it come.

by Sparrowgael

Age Group: Adult



I know that I'm no angel

though I've done the best I could;

I only used to be a Christian

but I've still tried to be good.

I know that God/dess loves me

and s/he'd help me if s/he could.

If the Rapture comes tomorrow

let it come.



I've wrestled with my demons

and I've (almost) always won;

I've made my peace with all the things

that cannot be undone.

And through the good times and the bad

you know, I've had a lot of fun.

If the Rapture comes tomorrow

let it come.



My love has been a romance

of the sort the poets tell

and we raised ourselves a family

and we did that very well

so I don't believe a loving god

would banish me to hell.

If the Rapture comes tomorrow

let it come.



I've tried to be respectful

but I always speak my mind

and in every situation

I've attempted to be kind.

I work toward what's ahead of me

not what I've left behind.

If the Rapture comes tomorrow

let it come.



I believe the after life

is a homecoming to Grace

and at such a massive table

I know I will have a place.

And all the Powers that Be

will not hold me in disgrace.

If the Rapture comes tomorrow

let it come.



From Heaven's vantage point

the view is plain to see

and there's no real separation

that's binding you from me

and the peaceful resolution

is to agree to disagree.

If the Rapture comes tomorrow

let it come.




Author's Notes: Well, as I'm sure we all know now, it didn't come on May 18th despite the amount of money spent in advertising to the contrary; now I understand we can expect it on October 21st; and if that fails us, there's always 12/21/12. Still, all the talk and frenzy got me to thinking and here is where my thoughts wandered to. Peace.
JL.
