Life has no guarantees
Death is no different
Heaven is not up
Hell is not down
They are both achievable on Earth.
Verily, an evil man can live a heavenly life
As a good man can live in hell
Paradise is a state of mind.
Where everything falls into place
And there is peace and tranquility
Do not waste your love on a deity
Made up by men of the past
Give your heart to a human
Pour your soul into theirs
Face your future's together
Do not speed your way through this wonderful gift
Rushing towards the promise of
For nothing is guaranteed in life
And death is no different
