In Heaven

In Heaven, do they remember the slave songs?
Of the yoke weighted down by all the wrongs,
The spirituals sung by those oppressed by sin,
And of the great burden the sinners carried within.

In Heaven, do they dwell on the memory,
Of those who spread misery,
And impoverishment and pain,
While losing their souls for temporal gain.

In Heaven, Does Love’s eternal presence,
Fill the soul with joyous reverence?
Do souls sings paeans of joy,
And for mercy received their songs employ?

In Heaven, are robes blue as the skies,
Or  resplendent as the sunrise?
Will anything on Earth stand scrutiny?
Compared to being in God’s presence eternally.

Charlie Bottle's passion is poetry. He has lived on three continents, speaks five languages and loves different cultures, people, music and food. He believes that "Poetry uses the economy of words to express the essence of our humanity." It is this magical use of brevity to express the profound that drew him to poetry. While his professional and personal life has pulled him in different directions, He continues in his discipleship of the craft and writes whenever the muse moves him. While English is his second language it is the language in which he lives, breathes, thinks and writes poetry.
