'A Land Of Joy, A Land Of Tears' - Poem by Stanley Lester Fuller

Within the moments that I spend embraced,
In painless, blissful sleep.
My soul embarks beyond its cage,
To heights beyond belief.

While traveling without the constraints of time,
Or chains of physical form.
I cast my sight on a land of light,
And one where shadows adorn.

A land of joy, where music is laughter,
And the streets are shinning as gold.
Where mountains and streams, speak sweetly of spring.
And crystal clear waters there flow.

Then turning my head my eyes come to rest,
On a land of shadows and fears.
Where sorrows abound, no hopes can be found,
And the streets are flooded with tears.

While looking upon these two different lands,
That seem so oddly alike,
I drift into mist and decide to sit down,
Between the dark and the light.

As I touch down then did appear,
A gate on each side of me,
And there on a sign read 'End of the line'
'Which gate? You heart is the key! '

'Which gate shall your heart open?
