Worthless dreams, useless plans; wasted lives

*****

I write from the future, from ages beyond

In a time when all those plans are fulfilled

At the height of achieved and lost dreams

At the end of it all when lives are measured

And a verdict is passed for your momentary breath

*****

And how I pity those little dreams!

Am amazed of your concern for those big plans!

Though they sound huge and important now

Coming from the future; I say it’s all vanity

Useless plans and wasted lives

*****

Wasted because you chase only after a mirage

Useless because it’s but a philosophy built on lies

Wealth, power, legacy, love…it’s all vanity

The one who gets them and the one who doesn’t

What difference is there?

*****

It’s all vanity, a chasing of winds

For kings and slaves have the same fate

Not until they can live past this life

And in that I rejoice for the hope after death

A hope that gives this life meaning

*****

I rejoice to know that my life won’t just fade away with time

That when all seems to fail, I will be born to a better world

I dream bigger dreams that a temporary world can’t contain

I make plans for an unending future living with my Saviour

Loving him and serving him now before living with him forever

*****

This life amounts to nothing until Jesus makes it count
