Escaping from heaven


Why am I here? Why does nobody hate me?
Should I be here? Do I deserve this pleasure?
Am I worthy to become part of the heavenly scene?
Everybody’s nice, interesting, calm and I’m sure they don’t hate me
I shouldn`t be here, Why am I still living this pleasure?
I fell guilty of even taking part for a few minutes in this scene
Heaven is not for everyone!
I start running down
And I`m sure that running down will only take me to hell
I reach a talking Sphinx
And he asks me:
How do you fell?
Guilty! I start running again
While I see the Sphinx bowing his head like saying: Yes!
I repent myself for my madness, but I still run down like a mad man
I reach a gate of Hell
I stay there, felling guiltier than before
I’m not mad anymore. I’m positively insane!
In that place I couldn’t sleep even though
I was bored and tiered
Ha! It seems that the worst punishment for me
Is eternal boredom
After a few minutes, I’m being brought back where the Sphinx was
And I realize it’s in between heaven and hell
So I think to myself…..
Do I have a second chance?
The Sphinx bows
I wake up in the greenest Park
I have been in my life
…………………………Just Smiling………………………….

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
