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.
