Is there a place for me up there?
Behind prison bars, a place retained
Repent and enter the Gates when called
Teach, philosophise, abstain.
Abandonment of those who build
Discard those who don’t agree
Have mercy on those who walk the trail
Inculcate to follow thee
Nature, nurture, heredity
A blank slate until you’re seven
Recklessness over intellect
Before you reach the Gates of Heaven
Privilege, Wealth, must walk alone
It is the weak who need attending
Abundance enters ‘Heaven’ on Earth
Needy shunned by Earth, to Heaven, sending
Witness free thought, o’er yonder seen
Destiny, belief, opposed
Should my thoughts belong to me?
Or should I think and follow as I’m told?
There is a small stream far away
He’s on one side, me the other
The side of thought is not divine
Thought, by location, became my brother.
