Heaven disappointed

Disappointment writ large,
Dreams shattered.
Aspirations of supremacy,
Everlasting reign of
The only one,

Unfulfilled.
Heaven where,
Peace, not bargained
for the faithfuls,
Flows eternal.

If this is what
Heaven is,
Where name does not matter,
Rainbow clouds not
Of the color white,
Or black and brown,
Where red is not
The color of danger,
But the color of blood.
Is this the heaven aspired for,
Where the scriptures,
no more supreme,
Non existent.

Is this the heaven
Aspired for,
Where the Father,
All merciful one,
Vishnu, Buddha,
Ahura Mazda,
All is one?

Restless souls,
Dreams shattered,
Unable or unwilling
To grasp
The metaphysical reality that
Truth is supreme,
Line up to return.

The earth waits,
Reincarnation,
To create hell
On the only heaven
That exists.

Because in division
They rule,
United they fall.
And somewhere, surprised,
The unseen creator
Goes to rest,
Assured that the
Fallen ones
shall find a scape goat,
In whose shoulder will rest the burden of their misdeeds
For creating hell
On earth.

Heaven can wait as
Line gets longer
Of unhaapy souls,
Eager to return
To the heaven
They made hell.

Heaven disappointed the faithfuls.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Utopia (like democracy) is a concept that reality cannot live up to. Of course, I think we could be closer to it than we are now if we started valuing life, justice, art, climate stability, etc, more than money. The Good Book says money is the root of all evil, and a man cannot serve two masters. Here is a story I love, one about diminishing resources and changing how we play to keep everyone in the game. http://baylanmegino.com/2013/06/22/how-robert-fulghum-reminded-me-that-we-can-keep-everyone-in-the-game/

    1. In my imagination, heaven is no Utopia. I can’t imagine of a place of rights without responsibilities.
      I also can’t imagine of heavens different for all the children of the books.
      Thanks for the link. Will check out.

      1. “I can’t imagine a place with rights and no responsibilities” Hey, isn’t this very much like my saying that I could not imagine freedom without boundaries? And does it not fit with my idea that we would all have work/jobs to do in Heaven? Yes, and yes. ☺

      2. Hey, that’s why we are friends and fighting 😜.
        Unfortunately your heaven does not have a place for me so we will have to meet in hell to continue this discussion 😀

  2. I won’t be there and neither will you, I hope. There will be no rational discussions held in hell. Sparring partners there will be no fun. ☺ (Trying out a new emoji. I don’t like it. So I will use it only on you.) ☺ 😀

  3. Thank you for sharing the poem from last year. I understand what you are saying but those you call the ‘faithfuls’ in this poem, will not be in the Heavens, unless the All Merciful God decides to forgive them . Per my Holybook, “God doesn’t like mischiefmakers”. Quran says clearly, Allah may forgive all sins except one, (I will come to that later). He may and will forgive sins that people commit by not following His commands. But for every injustice, every hurt people inflict on others, the dinner has to ask for and get the pardon from those who were hurt. That is why asking for forgiveness from individuals is very important to us. My dear friend, please forgive me, if I have hurt you in anyway.
    Now, coming to your words to your blog friend, “Unfortunately your heaven does not have a place for me..”. I am sure, by this ‘your’ you are covering others like me, as well. I will tell you that you are wrong about that assumption. As per the Quran, Allah the All Merciful will forgive all sins committed against Him, except for 1. And that is assigning any equal to Him.
    If you believe in just One, Unseen, All Powerful Creator of the entire Universe, doesn’t matter what you call Him, and not assign any partner to that Supreme Creator, I have bad news for you, my friend, you will enter the Heavens by His Grace. The Heavens that Islam, and the Quran talks about.
    As for people of the Books, Quran says that Prophets were sent to every nation of the world. Only 25 prophets are mentioned in the Quran. Some prophets were given holy books to pass on to humankind.  The prophets taught the same basic ideas,  most importantly belief in one Creator.  But as time passed, people started adding changes to the books as per their interpretation and/or convenience.  That is why so many divisions among humankind.  But this is also mentioned in the Quran, that if He (“I”) wanted, He could have made everyone the same.  But He didn’t.
    He created this world for all of us to enjoy, to observe, and learn from. Using our intellect, asking questions, doing scientific research, acquiring knowledge is very much encouraged. 
    Keep the heart clean.
    Love all. Atleast harm nobody.
    Believe in just 1 Unseen Creator, Who is nothing like human.
