Heaven Versus Hell


I have found no footprints or history. My reality
A single floret from a dandelion flower
Drifting away with forced hands
By density’s road map against intended consequences
Away from family, loved ones, lovers and close friends
Into the distant unknown
Two random paths: Birth or Curse
Frame my one existence on this Earth
Birth the natural order of things
When left alone will survive and thrive
In the arms of embracing wilderness
Abundant space for all to share and grow
What If instead I'm destined to the other path?
The dreadful curse on Earth!
Against all odds, I seed myself somehow
To see my offspring uprooted or decapitated
The undesirable consequences of manicured humanity
Buzzing with the artificial jungle of vanity
With heavy use of pesticides chase away
The butterflies and honeybees
From the fake perfect façade!
A second rate creation envious of God
Trying to birth paradise lost
From an Alzheimer’s memory
The Garden of Eden
Could one path be true heaven?
While the other hell, oh dear!

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
