Life is Good!

Don’t Go Towards The Light!
They scream.
It is a command,
A warning,
But what of?
They never tell us what to be afraid of at the end of that tunnel.
Only that the light is a dark, dark place
That is to be feared by all.
Because they said so.
And we believe them?
For all I know, that light is the only reference point for me in this dark, dark world
And by human instinct, I would want to get out of the dark.
Oh yeah, because then I’d be dead.
Because they said so.

The author's comments:
Has anyone ever thought of how they came up with the idea of the "light at the end of the tunnel" that we supposedly see when we are about to pass away? How do they know that that is what happens? have they died and been resurrected? I only know one guy who did that, and he didn't ever mention anything like that. how can we trust what they say is true?
