What if

 

What if

 

What if I already was in the afterlife?


If this already was Heaven on Earth?


I would stop seeing suspicious people.

 

I would know

No one could ever harm me.

 

I would never be afraid.


Never afraid, neither of the future


Nor of the past

Where

My history is known.

 

I would never worry

 

When


Something was out of kilt.


Because I would know

 

I had

Already been

Admitted to heaven,

Accepted, confirmed 


Without guilt.

 

What if I already was in the afterlife?

I would be more loving


Kinder


And without strife.

 

NEVERTHELESS


I will reverse expectation.

 

I will not wait 

to

be more loving


kinder


without strife.

 

FOR SUCH ACTIONS

 

I need not wait for the afterlife.

    That last line says it all, we must all be kind to others in our present life.
