Heaven And Hell

Rating: 4.9
Heaven...

We speak of doves and cherubims
Of angels chanting mystic hymns
With shimm`ring, swirling mists of night
Enshrouding souls in heav`nly flight

Then wait in hope that all shall find
Eternal peace for humankind -
Beyond the stars, this holy place,
We think to gaze upon His face

What else can be said this poem says it powefully. Perhaps the Bohemians were right, truth, beauty, freedom and above all things love. These are ideals that exist without the need for fear to suppress and control, but alas people would not be encouraged to think for themselves. Love the way you split the poem so digital, monochrome a reply in terms acceptable to many theists.

What a philosophy, I cannot agree with you more! Heaven and Hell are both embodied in the human condition. They are not places or physical destinations one can reach in body. Rather a mental destination, a state of mind within all of us, within all the deeds by every single man and woman in the world. Thank you Valerie for honoring this philosophy with sound literary craft!

Heaven and Hell here on earth; so eloquently written in equal form, not many can feel what you feel and still maintain the ability to express it. Thank You Valerie.......
