I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door
Not by the beauty of it all
Nor the lights or its decor

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp
The thieves, the liars, the sinners
The alcoholics and the trash

There stood that guy from sec school
Who hurt me so much
Next to him was my old neighbour
Who never said anything nice

Mas, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell
Was seated happy on cloud nine
Looking incredibly well..

I nudged God, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take
How did all these sinners get up here?
You must have made a mistake..'

'And why is everyone so somber, and quiet?' -Was my question

'Hush, child,' He said. 'They're all in shock.
No one thought they'd be seeing you.'

some people say you'll meet St. Paul at the heaven's gate..and he'll ask you.."son, why do you think you'll here?"

hmm...i also don't know what i'll answer him..probably.."hey man, obey the master, he sent me here..." haha..naughty me...

i guess..even if we have entered the gate of heaven...we are still learning not to judge..

cos..in heaven...there's no name of sinner "liars, robbers...etc'"

...hence we passed through the gate for we are judged yet pardoned..

so son, ain't no shocked..

i'm sorry, i laughed at the ending. a super high level of self reflection...this reminds me of an incident i encountered. i kept insisting to my fren that the place we are in smells bad. she was v puzzled cos she couldnt smell anything bad. maybe she tot i was neurotic? :P then finally i discovered that i had bird shit on my jacket near my shoulder. no wonder i tot the place stinks! :D
humans are not perfect beings, though we may strive to be! maybe we can all learn fr angie's post.
