Not Wanting To Come Back - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Remembering feelings and thoughts of death, not wanting
to come back, wanting to stay forever where I felt that
I belonged in heaven.

Being brought back, a layer of despair remains beneath
the surface for I didn't want to return to earth, only
wanting to remain where I was healed and safe.

Not wanting to come back to life and be sick and in
pain for the rest of my time living on earth in abject
poverty because of our corrupt government.

There is definitely a heaven and I prefer it over earth.

    When you return you will not remember what you left behind. That is the grace of God. Who wants to remember the things we may have done in this life that we are living at this time? ? You will meet at the river of life for your next experience.
    Well written poem..Wonderful thoughts Good construction.
