An Idea Of Heaven - Poem by Hasmukhlal Amathalallal

The idea of heaven has always fascinated me
Even though everybody on this earth has thoughts for free
This occurs to us only when some has departed from our home
We wish their soul to rest in peace and get welcome

Even if person has done nothing good on this earth
We wish his/her soul should find place in heaven after death
Only good words are said on the back of departed soul
It is customary and traditional wishes to give such calls

It has baffled me over the fate of soul after departure
The religious books mention of only two places for sure
Heaven and hell are destined in everybody’s fate
Death is certain for all and may come soon or late

I, as child, had cried over mother’s death in accident
It was shock and almost broke me with sad moment
I was unable to come out from shock and thought over
Where and what she may be doing there?

I can’t think much about another world
It sends me shiver in spine and cold
I can’t imagine some one’s departure from fold
Only few can bear the loss and face as bold

As child, I used to dream about that beautiful place
All people may be residing at one place in peace
They might have their place and enjoying
Yet it sent me some times in tears with crying

Of late it has been made clear and we have concluded
Our own performance on earth is absolutely included
Not only for the self satisfaction but journey abroad
Else one may definitely die with remorse and heavy load

We may be compelled some of the bad acts
But the basic things doesn’t alter with facts
Life as such has been taken as temporary phase
Our quest for material gain is considered as mad chase

In short, we have the vision to assure our place
We may know in advance where we will be in that case
We also can reassure happiness on face
As everything is fulfilled happily in limited space

    Emma Jane Immortal Soul Travels

    We are but a shell for a soul unbound -
    Skin, an enclosure around spirits, profound.
    More, we are, than just bone and cuticle -
    Courageous being, immortal, beautiful.

    Past life, conception, to celebration of birth -
    Your soul, an essentia, dancing with mirth.
    Existences on planes, unexplained, unravel -
    Within a continuum, spiritual spectrums travel.

    Evolutionarily revolving, to find a direction -
    Know your worth, creation of perfection.
    Your definitive energy in the essences of death -
    Continuing journeys, long after last breath.
