Take me away

To where there is no pain, anguish and misery

From where there is no exaltation of my open wounds

To where the end is welcomed

I search my heart to find the promised place up there 

That place that people pray and yearn to go to

But I can not find it

It is not there nor where I can touch it or feel it

Or is it and I just don’t see it?

I ache for total and complete respite.

Will it come soon?

I can only hope that the

Holy One comprehends the anguish caused by my affliction and 

Comes to my rescue and takes me to his domain, up there, but 


All I know is His son’s answer:

“Heaven is within you.”
