Sonnet (Iambic Tetrameter) : How to Go to Heaven

The soul we bring when we are born,
Given by God to every man,
Is full of grace and not sin-torn,
And must be so, for one’s life-span!

But often tempted, man on earth,
Succumbs to devils’ lies galore,
And loses purity of birth,
Drifting away from God, the more!

Man’s life on earth futile remains,
If he can’t keep his soul, most pure;
The righteous person, heaven gains,
By keeping road to God for sure!

Like children, we must always be,
To enter heav’n’s eternity!
