Rookie (27 / Sukuta town)


More often than not; so much often than not,
We talk about heaven; we imagine heaven,
We pray and wish; to go to heaven,
Yet funnily enough; we don't want to die,
Or do you; well I don't! ! ! !

    Heaven is just one step behind yours
    Two step beyond me in your hands that lures
    This beautiful write and hell all in mind cures
    at least this for now the heart assures....... (Report) Reply

    everyone wants to go to heaven, because everyone is not ready to face death, which is the ticket. a good insight. (Report) Reply

    We are created to live our life peacefully, we should taste its good and bad fruits. Heaven to wait away even of our thinking for we feel sorry often with every bite. (Report) Reply
