How did we end up like this?

What would I think about?
If Im stucked in a car ditched into a river,
Waiting for air to run out,
Gasping at nose height.

What would I think about?
If I'm on my death bed,
With worldly glories and powers in both hands,
Invested to nowhere except self destruction,
Unreachable arms length to fix what was then wrong,
and what is now aftermath.

What would I think about?
If I'm stucked in a lift,
On my way defying the Most High,
with blazing fire drowning me alive,
Wishing breathlessly,
That I wouldn't be here in the first place.

What would I think about?
Dying a good man,
God abiding wife and son,
Complex and houses with widows and orphans,

What would I think about?
Knees kissing dust,
Eyes blind,
Hands tight,
In front of a live barrel,
Reasoned in diminishing Truth and The One.
Waiting for a lively life,
Dawning from the pulpits of paradise.
Whiffing the sweetest of perfume,
Soul flowing out like a calm water,
Flying high to the One whom my whole life devoted to,
Angels stretched out from the two horizons
Opening up the gates of the sky,
Magnified afterlife,
Belittling what was then an endless pain and suffering of life

What would I think about?

What would life be about?

Oh Restless Body and Soul.
