2016 November 25, A ticket into Heaven (an impression after reading a review in the NY Times Books, Sunday)

Posted on: November 25, 2016

2016 November 25
A ticket into Heaven
Is there such a thing?
Is Heaven a state of being?
A place?
A fantasy?
Is it a destination or a balm
Soothing the rotten road rash of reality?
Haunted by anguish
For the way things ought to be
In contrast to
The way things are
A child opined
That’s not fair
The teacher responded
Life isn’t fair
A truer thing was never said
And, Heaven help us, a source of much despair
