The dash in between

03 March 2015, 12:19

We do see burial posters of dead (deceased) people, some may be people we know, loved ones, former friends and foes. Right at the poster we it is boldly written the date that particular soul came in this Corinthian world and then the day that soul left the earth to an endless abode in eternity, but between this two partial important dates, is a little short line drawn which we call dash.

That is the main thing that will give the real detail of the life time of the deceased fellow, the years he/she lived may be long or short but how was it spent. As a thief, liar, prostitution, boyfriend and girlfriend seducing others thru dressing, murdering, fornication, cheating, in fate or in faith, joy or jungle, participating in the world's trending politics.

To mention but a few, all this is what the dash in between the birth date and date, departure date (eternity)as we know that death is the forerunner to eternity at large either in heaven a home for the holy people or in hell a home of the carefree life spenders.

What will your own dash say?
