The Final Judgement

Soon I must leave and go.
But the seed of the Word in you, I did sow.
Just like the master who departed on a journey.
Gave his servants his power of attorney.
All three of them, he gave charge of his property.
Full freedom to use his name with power and authority.
He gave to each one according to their ability.
Such was the master's trust and generosity.

To the first he gave five thousand gold coins.
The others with two thousand and one thousand, he blessed and did anoint.
The first one, five thousand immediately he invested.
Likewise, the second - two thousand as suggested.
But, the third one dug a hole.
Hid and burried that money inside a bowl.

After a long time, the master returned. 
And to settle the accounts, he turned.
And then, when The Books were opened,
the master was pleased with the good and faithful servants.
Come and share in my happiness.
Because you have toiled in faithfulness.
I will make you in charge of larger amounts.
For you, always more than plenty to surmount.

The one given five thousand had made ten thousand.
Likewise, the one given two thousand had doubled it to four thousand.
To him who multiplies, more will be given.
But from him who fears, even their little will be taken.
The third servant was fearful of the master.
Didn't see him as a graceful father, but a taskmaster.
So, in fear and in the serpent's lies he was crippled.
Instead of using the authority of the master, he could have tripled.
To the first two he said, "share in my happiness".
But the third one, he banished into the darkness.

When the Son of Man comes as King,
mixed feelings, it will bring.
Those who eagerly awaited his coming,
relieved and overjoyed in His glory, they'll be sharing. 
To His left and right, He'll separate the sheep from the goats.
Those who refused to help one-in-need. 
To His left, he will thresh out like weed.
He will dispose of them to the eternal fire.
Prepared for the devil and his angels to retire.
What you did for the least important brothers of mine.
Fed, welcomed, clothed and visited - all divine.
What you did for them, consider done for me.
And when you refused help to them, you refused me.
Those on my left, they that refused help.
Must then suffer, the eternal punishment.

(Inspired by Matthew 25:14-46)
