The final Big Bang
The heavens shall melt with a fervent heat
and with a big bang God's purpose complete.
Then with a great roar it will disappear
and a new heaven and earth will appear.
God says "Behold, I make all things new
and will wipe away all the tears from you."
There'll be no more suffering or despair
For The Lord himself will be with us there.
Written after reading Revelation 21 and 2 Peter 3

Poet's Notes about The Poem
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
Revelation 21: 1-6
Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth, " for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look! God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new! " Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
