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 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 uniqueness of this phase is that it is not a respecter of your:
Spirituality and Religiosity,
Fame, Fortunes and Power,
Money and Wealth,
Post ,Position, Possessions Provisions and Popularity.
Achievements, Accolades, Laurels and Accomplishments,
Beauty and Ugliness,
Bravery and Cowardice,
Ego, Pride and Humility,
Intelligentsia, Brilliance, Dullness and Commoners,
Low, High and Mighty,
Tallness and shortness,
Color, 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 all humans to be answerable and accountable for all acts and deeds while on earth.
It is an emotional phase that triggers wailing and 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.
What exactly is this inevitable phase of human existence that is important and popular in the annals of human history?
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.
Without mincing words, have you ever thought about your last moment on earth?
Have you ever thought 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 mortal 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 strong hand”—-(William Shakespeare).
“Death —A counterfeiting Sleep”—–(William Shakespeare).
“To-morrow,and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools,
The way to dusty death,
Life’s but a walking shadow”—(William Shakespeare–Macbeth,Act V Scene V.)
Thinking about this phase is enough to bring any reasonable person down on the path of humility.
It is a leveler, it a phase that enforces equality of every human and there is no one born on earth that will not be humbled by this phase no matter the achievements such a person might have attained in life.
Every thing living on the surface of the earth will bow down to death even plants.
As death bring about loss, pains and agony, it is a stage or a phase that send a message to all human that there is always a time when all of us will leave behind whatever we think we have achieved.
Death is the stage whereby life becomes meaningless but the only thing that always remain after death is the stories of the good or the bad we have done in the process of our existence on earth.
While we are born to be alive till the last phase, we all should remember that no one can escape this phase and this put a responsibility on us to live a life of responsibility, responses and impact so that when the final curtain is drawn, we will be able to have affected life’s around us.
