The Better way to Heaven?

The Better way to Heaven?

A Poem by Sai

What to do?


Is it better to remain naive and sweet;

An innocent pure heart that blinds all evil;

To trick yourself into believing that bad is actually somewhat good;

Having a heart like an innocent child;

Who spilled the flour on the kitchen floor;

Only to try to clean it while smothering flour dust unto the air;

Will that get me to heaven?

Or do I seek depth and deepness;

Looking for knowledge near and far;

Kissing the waxed shoes of famous scholars;

And soaking into my ears every noise that comes between their lips?

Follow them like paparazzi;

Everywhere they go I must too;

Surely this is the right thing to do;

They are my golden ticket to paradise;

A gift from Willy Wonka himself; the whole chocolate factory;

Munching on all the treats with no cavities;

Will I be held more accountable for this wisdom I have received;

Or the list of events I need to attend to seek my beloved speakers;

They talk and talk and talk;

And I walk and walk and walk;

Hoping that the door to paradise is getting closer to me;

Is this the right way?

Or is simplicity?

Great write! If I make it to heaven, they'll probably have me mowing lawns, so I'm not a fan of religion, but willy wanka floats my boat. Haha
Your second line: wouldn't an innocent heart be blind to evil... or is it like holy water in the eyes of vampires.

"Round the world and home again
That's the sailor's way
Faster faster, faster faster

There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There's no knowing where we're rowing
Or which way the river's flowing

Is it raining, is it snowing
Is a hurricane a–blowing

Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of Hell a–glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing

Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they're certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing."

-Roald Dahl
