Heaven Can Wait; But Why Would You Want It To? - THE GENIUS IN CHILDREN

Heaven Can Wait; But Why Would You Want It To?

by Rick on December 17, 2019

It’s Not True,
what we’ve been told,
that heaven has to wait until we die.

Thinking I would have to make my case someday,
I spent my whole life in the hell of bettering,
bettering myself and others, the world,
but bettering just fed despair and
nothing happened.

At last I just stood up and said, “May I come in? I’ve done
some things I shouldn’t do, and not done things I should,
and I’m a stupid, fucking idiot.” And then I heard
a voice which said: I know. It’s not your fault.
It’s how you’re made. Come in.
You like your coffee black?
…or room for cream?
(A poem for this Advent season.)

But bettering is the challenge and the point. Things happened even when they were not obvious. Thank you for bettering.
I’ll take mine black,.

We are all
stupid fucking idiots
and some of us are sufficiently brilliant
to understand this.
Those of who accept it
and can be satisfied as we bumble through life
learning amazing and wonderful things along the way
relishing every small victory over idiocy
are the happy ones.
Heaven is where you find it.

Forgiveness is great like that.
