The Determination of Fate

by A.M. Moodley

Shall I explore thou world outside of mine?
Thou world outside is more gorgeous and bright,
For fresh air, earth, and thy clear sky I pine,
‘Tis lovely even in the dead of night;
Doth thou world ever end or ever fade?
My world is fading and will soon be gone,
A farewell that I will be forced to bade,
Shall this be where I forever belong?
Or down will I go to the fiery depths,
Where demons prowl and no free breath is heard,
‘Tis a home of suffering, pain, and death,
A place where I will always be disturbed;
But I have faith in thee and thine own words,
That thou will bring me up to hear the birds.
