How Much Farther Away Could The Jannah Be?
How could I possibly be surprised,
If I died … this time?
Even a cat only has 9 lives.
I’ve dodged Death so often
I should pre-purchase my coffin.
I should prepare where I plan to leave my remains,
Minimize my losses and maximize my gains.
I should write my own obituary so I don’t have to worry
About which cemetery will bury me,
Or, how to include my sister Joanne and my Brother Berry…
Since I am about to be Blessed to turn 70, Inshallah,
How much farther away could The Jannah be?
