In the Minds-Eye…

Imagine being on the edge

of eternity where hours have

no end, is there day and night,

are the stars close and bright.

 

Does the moon hang below

Heavens invisible veil; do the

stars hang by silvery threads,

and are the clouds soft like

feathery beds.

 

Are there beings living on planets

scattered throughout the Universe,

are their lives better or worse; do

they have a God like ours, do they

have greater powers.

 

Is there actually a Heaven and Hell,

are these places fiction or fact; only

time will tell, in truth one must die…

to find if paradise exist or if it was

all just a lie.

 

Imagine being without sorrow or pain,

if it is all true, we have nothing to lose

and everything to gain; we can allow

our imagination to wander away; but

remember to live life day-by-day.

  1. Very well said, written…is there someone out-there who could give us the answers that many times come to our heads and minds? We’re in the eyes of something huge with a bit of magic, an unknown force it seems…around us, over us…and below us too!

  2. A beautiful poem 🙂 yes it is a question of faith and belief – giving a name to a God/Goddess form or formless higher power! We reap the fruits of our actions! Be it good or bad – redemption by the saviour may or may not happen – but everything is part of a larger script conceived by a higher power! At the end of the day one has to answer/face the consequences of one’s actions!
