Can we make the world heaven? Is this a pipe dream
With an angel food topping baked in a kitchen
That is somewhat inadequate? If I think so,
Then, of course, it’s a notion with nowhere to go.
Some would tell me to dry up and quit my bitchin’
Because they see that hell is a recurrent theme.
In a way, that makes some sense. Life is not a crime.
If I could not be satisfied with how things are
Then I wouldn’t find peace with any condition.
That would be an astute point, in my admission.
If I made my own heaven, would that be bizarre?
Making heaven of myself indeed should be prime.
Heaven was made in spirit. All things are conceived
From the space that is no place yet still it exists.
Changing only the content in my life will make
Not that much of a difference. I come awake
When I alter the context of life. It consists
Of all tools that are needed for heaven achieved.
I can do the same things, but in different ways.
There are myriad ways in which things can be done.
They can be done carelessly or with mindfulness.
As our ways become multiplied, we may express
Ways of solving our problems. Heaven had begun
Long before our arrival to offer malaise.
