    mmm mmm! 'Where was heaven? ' i ve questioned that too. is there even a heaven?
    but now i do believe there is one. If you have kids or baby cousins, neices or nephews, just children period are are PROOF THAT THERE IS!
    but i feel you 'where was heaven when..... when i was going through my nightmares? 'where was heaven during nine eleven? ' you know something else it's not gods fault. he gave the ability to choose right from wrong. yeah i thought about why couldn't he stop them and save all those people and why wont he bring peace to the middle east or why wont he stop little children from dying and having horrible horrible things from happening to them WHY? Where is heaven while all this happens? Lee (Report) Reply

    You are here to write about it. Without any heaven, things would be worse. Hard to imagine, but true. You write words of such deep feelings and thoughts. You have a way of choosing words and creating emotion. In your writing you give vision to life and it's ways. A talent exercised in every line of your work. DC (Report) Reply

    Keep asking friend and maybe an answer will come! But if I were you, I wouldnt ask because I dont believe in heaven!

    well said. people say there's a heaven but, when you need it the most, it seems as if it nowhere to be found. (Report) Reply

    This is a heartfelt poem and very very sad. You have brought so much emotion in with your words.
    Heaven is a state of consciousness and we all create our own reality and there is a simple law of the universe which is what goes around comes around. Once we know this we can record what happens to us and what transpires as a result. Even in the face of death we can chose what we do. So, keep up the good work writing! It is a therapy in itself......Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    Amazing, emotionally charged poem. Ask's some very real questions, and deserves some very real answers! I also like your rhyme scheme. (Report) Reply

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
