cynical or honest?

heaven or otherwise



obviously   if the orange is there

one of us will eat it 

just as obviously   if any goal is enticing enough


there will be a way to get there

(if it is not too hard)

heaven is a goal i never wanted   that may change


for now   i prefer to think of myself 

becoming motes

in the cosmos   but you   you want heaven   you will 


find a way there   even if it takes a tortured

and convoluted path   

you are willing   the end will justify the means   


be comforted in knowing the difference between heaven 

and the cosmos is largely in the landscaping

Honest, I think. But would that heaven be worth all the pain and suffering one has to go through?
