Is this the way to Heaven?
If I knock, will I be let in?
Or are they going to tell me it’s not yet my time?
And send me back to earth.
Will I cry when I get there?
Will I sob, and will I plead?
Will I die if I’m not invited in?
And die again when I return.
Will I learn something new about my life?
Will they tell me that I’ll be okay?
Will they reassure me??
And come back to earth having learnt something new.
Am I going to survive?
Am I going to thrive?
Or will it be more of the same?
I guess I’ll find out.
I’m now back on earth.
And I can’t go back.
I can move forward though.
Even when it feels like I’m going back.
Heaven won’t let me in.
But earth does.
And that is what I have to take.

Hi 🙂 151 words and In case you haven’t guessed….this is NOT a poem, I can’t write those! 😉 But it is a question 🙂
This Tuesday’s photo prompt provided by J.S.Brand (thank you). And the writing challenge hosted by our lovely PJ over at FFFAW. Visit the site and read other’s work here and/or click on the Blue Frog button below 🙂
My own ‘House’ is being rebuilt. Same as the physical one in this photo.
As it’s supported by timber to prop it up, mine is supported by Love. Keeping me in place, holding me up.
Today my friends came through and God came through, as he always comes through. My love for my man kept coming through.
Oh, how love can hurt. The betrayal caused from an early age lasts. ‘Family’ is the first love. And then when that ‘love’ is squashed and innocence is stolen: Pain is what’s caused… from that very first encounter with ‘Love’.
Can loving and being loved ever happen once more?? Can you love again?? Truly love again?? Deeply?
It’s a tall order.
But not impossible.
Love comes back. But this time, the love is Real.

Snakes get a bad rep. That’s how I think: ‘Believe?’ Not sure.
They slither around in the grass to eat. And to mate.
Some are filled with venom. Do they know they are vilified?? Could that be the reason they have the power to kill?
I met a Snake once…I ran down the road in terror.
And then, I met one 3 years ago – as an adult – named ‘Rory’. God, he was gorgeous, and sweet looking too. But, I was scared. His Dad was in control though, and I tentatively stroked him.
But I do wonder…Are they no different? We protect ourselves. Mammals protect themselves. Would You go near a lion? I personally would like to stroke one…If I could!
And let’s not forget what we are taught about Snakes: Truthfully, Are They Evil?? Or is it a certain someone that’s portrayed as one?
I’m on the fence 🙂

150 words exactly. The point of the story is this: Are Snakes that bad? In comparison to the rest of us?
