Heavens - Poem by kunjubi varghese

We grieve for riches, our hearts break for beloveds;

Desolate on account of blindness;

Distressed in having, sight and vision.

Life as a whole is always wrenched in agony...

Those who envision a heaven, in a place beyond

This earth, and aspiring to reach there,

Fleeing from all earthbound woes,

Are fondling, a will of the wisp – alluring and delusive.

Realize now, that in here is the heaven and the hell.

Experience both, in this world in a life time.

New York or Paris; Jesus or Krishna.

The prophet or Jehovah is all equal to a blind.

Those who believe that God is overseeing everything,

Are holding such a faith, in their stupidity.

Behold, both God and Satan, in here itself.

Both are thriving on the faith of followers.

They have domiciled in this earth now and

Abound by believers and worshipers;

Proving that earth is a better place, than Heaven!
