A Very Sick Man

Days have passed and it's about time,
the coughs are louder and scarier,
a big casket is kept open for the day
when the decision is to be made
about anything that one believes,
a question of faith is to be recalled,
from the bright days of childhood,
when things would seem more clear
and one was yet to commit; remember
the stance has to be firm and quick.
The left body rests motionless on the white bed
the most enriching experience will come now
when reality would take the lead somehow
denying every belief he once had
and certainly the sanity would revive
the sick man will be free at last!
