There is an inevitable phase every mortal is created and designed to pass through. It is an important phase in the life of every mortal even though almost everyone born of a woman behaves as if this phase is either not important or less important.It is a phase that is designated to terminates the existence of every human being. It is a phase that announces the beginning of human journey into the realm of eternity which can either be for perdition or glorification.
It is an exit point between life and eternity. It is a point of no return for everyone born of a woman. It is the final moment for everyone living on earthly pedestal.
One of the uniqueness of this phase is that it is not a respecter of:
Spirituality and Religiosity,
Fame, Fortunes and Power,
Money, Materials and Wealth,
Post, Position, Possessions, Provisions and Popularity,
Achievements, Accolades, Laurels and Awards,
Beauty, handsomeness and Ugliness,
Ego, Pride and Humility,
Intelligentsia, Brilliance, Dullness and Cowardice,
Low, High and Mighty,
Tallness, shortness, Fatness and slimness,
Colour, Country and Continents,
Race, ethnicity and Tribe,
Rich, Poor and the downtrodden.
It is a phase that turns everything into nothing.
It is a phase that humbles the proud.
It is a phase that weakens the strong.
It is a phase that makes the fearless become fearful.
It is a phase that makes all humans to be answerable and accountable for all acts and deeds while on earth.
It is an emotional phase that triggers wailing and all round gnashing of teeth.
It is a phase that is announced by weeping, sobbing and regrets.
It is a phase that takes away the best of men.
It is a phase that silences the proud.
It is a phase that disgraces the worst of men.
It is a phase that destroys the beauty of life.
It is a phase that many of us prefer celebrating even though it is quite wrong and it is a show of hypocrisy humanity is known for.
What exactly is this inevitable phase of human existence that is important and popular in the annals of human history?
Without mincing words,
Have you ever think about your last moment on earth?
Have you ever think about what people will say when the curtain is drawn?
What will be the general comments at your graveyard?
DEATH is a phase of inevitable departure that no one can dodge.
It is the last phase that we cannot be denied of.
It is a transition to justification,glorification,condemnation and damnation.
DEATH is the phase being talked about by your author.
Every mortals shall experience and encounter the sting of death .
No immortality without the sting of death.
Death will be the last moment for every mortal being.
At the end,
“No one can hold mortality’s strong hand” (William Shakespeare).
“Death–A counterfeiting sleep” (William Shakespeare).
“vita aliud nihil quam ad mortem iter”–life is nothing but a path to death”
“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this pretty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools,
The way to dusty death,
Out, Out, brief candle,
Life’s but a walking shadow”—-William Shakespeare—Macbeth, Act V Scene V).
