Random Acts of Poetry: What's the Difference?

(c) 2012 Rick Kelley

There is no difference at first glance,
Christian, infidel alike, 
will suffer loss and time and chance,
and death upon the door will strike.

No earthly indicator here
of who's approved and who's denied,
no circumstance to mourn or cheer
for men accepted or decried.

Alas, no darling hope ahead
for men who live for vice and pride,
for misery's the road they tread,
eternal torment in their stride.

Debts will be settled Judgment Day,
all men do owe for sin - a price.
The sinner has a bill to pay;
Redeemed, the Christian has the Christ.
