Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
ENTRY TO HEAVEN
You ask for entry
Where is your book of dreams
Where is your bag of accomplishments
Your book is empty, save your desire to go to heaven
Your bag has nothing
What did you do?
Did you not dream?
Did you just stand at the crossroads and not move in one direction, or another?
Did you not take chances?
Did you love?
Did you care?
Go back now!
Fill that book with dreams
Fill that bag with accomplishments
Take some chances
I gave you the intellect to accomplish anything you wanted
I gave you the cunning to make sound decisions
I gave you the creativity to dream good dreams
And you stood there and did nothing
Cared about no one
Come back when you are ready
And entry thru these gates will be guaranteed
these pearly gates of heaven.
