Heaven Bound - Poem by Aldo Kraas

I may speak of many things
But in the end it’s only this
The journey of a soul to bring
Into the world some peace and bliss
For all of man i am a man
After all do we not need
Each one of us to lend a hand
To the other who still bleeds
From wounds inflicted by a force
Far greater than ourselves a blind
Energy that lost it’s course
Before the advent of our kind
Upon this earth? We know not why
Pain is master of our lives
Therefore the soul must end this lie
And return to paradise
Not the one we left behind
Destroyed by ignorance and time
But another yet to find
In some distant future mind
Only a tool to take us there
Where the eagles have not dared
To fly the naked soul is bared
To the heart that climbs the stairs
Alone to heaven and brings back
To the earth the treasures found
In the darkness lays the tracks
For the train that’s heavenbound
And I am inside that train that will take me to heaven today
To see my loved ones just for a day
But then I will be back with the train at the end of the day
