A Questioning Mind


The mind of another human being,
Looked at me from behind dark brown eyes,
And asked me 'What are you seeing?
And please, do not answer me with lies'.
I said ' I see a starving child,
And I don't know why I still do,
But worst of all this is reality,
For many millions, not just a few.'

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
