Celestial Music


I have a friend who still believes in heaven.
Not a stupid person, yet with all she knows, she literally talks to God.
She thinks someone listens in heaven.

    I like this poem very much. It feels contemplative. Its imagery and soft emotions are nicely versed. One steps out of this poem with an absence of answer, which is a feeling many of us share. (Report) Reply

    Like many modern poems there seems to be a struggle in belief systems (Report) Reply

    I LIKE THIS POEM.It is realism.It is hard to take something good out of all the bad/sad things we witness in todays world.but we should look within and not outside for it because that piece of goodness is within us all to give and to appreciate the good in life.its what makes the bad things bearable.

    IT IS SAD THAT ONE WHO IS DEVOID OF HOPE HAS ONLY DERISION FOR ONE WHO IS FILLED WITH HOPE.
    I FIND THIS POEM TO BE A WASTE OF WORDS! (Report) Reply

    Making sense of reality is difficult without faith. Wise words, wise friend.
    I gained much insight from your words. It's a piece of poetry that needs
    to be read many times. (Report) Reply
