Heaven, Are You There?


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.

    1. Hi PJ πŸ™‚ I have no idea what that form was! lol! But for some unknown reason I felt it fit to write it that way. Exactly, everyone has their own questions they would like answers to and maybe introspection brings it outwards. I’m V glad you liked it, Thank you πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Enkin. Don’t be intimidated, it may look like a poem, but definitely not because I think you have to be a certain kind of writer to pen those, and that certainly isn’t me!! πŸ™‚ Yes it’s bit of a heavy topic, that was just the mood my mind was in at the time, but it was good to get it written down and out of my head πŸ™‚


All words welcomed :)
