Heaven and Hell are here on Earth,
The Kingdom of Heaven at hand.
On this trip beginning at birth,
There are things we must understand.
Good and bad are in everyone.
There is evil throughout the land.
Goodness abounds beneath the sun.
Are things random or are they planned?
Many things are common to all,
A thread truly runs through all things.
A body lives till death does call,
The proverbial fat lady sings.
What we need is some peace of mind
And a fire when it becomes cold.
Love and joy are things hard to find;
We learn these things as we grow old.
One thing does seem certain to me,
No matter what else comes to be:
My soul continues to be free
To exist through Eternity.
