Bear the weight….
What falls from heaven
into the realm of men,
is tainted by the shadows there,
for what beauty can in time translate,
is so often never sated,
just blindly misconstrued.
Little heaven manifests on earth,
its base intentions so disconcert,
and angels fear the darkness here,
only few will remain to ensure our care,
as the blight so overwhelming,
faith long lost, suspending.
Yet through eyes of compassion,
life may seem redeeming,
kindness not lost as all,
just veiled by the scheming
of heartless shallow fools dreaming
to control what life has in store.
When we in daily breath,
find kindness and in fellow souls
address that connection we have as one,
souls all fragments of the sun,
we learn that hope lives on,
and love can save the basest earth from itself.
Heaven can live on earth
if we accept the limits of our birth,
and aspire to the truth of love,
and soulless greed our races run,
just know that we are worth the fight,
to share with one another and bear the plight of growth.
