Looking Forlornly at Heaven’s Gates

Looking Forlornly at Heaven’s Gates

written by: Walid Boureghda


Once upon a time, in a faraway hometown,
Some siblings have been fighting for the crown.

Their parents succumbed many moons ago.
The poor siblings, in grief, swayed to and fro.

Soon after, they expelled their young brother
From their home, they are no longer together.

And lo, more than a decade has passed by:
No calls, no texts, no one did even try.

Only God knows what lies within the souls;
He is the One who shall haul o’er the coals.

Until then, hearts and minds are in dire straits.
They shall forlornly look at Heaven’s gates.

Life is brief and death stands slightly aloof.
People fear God for His angry reproof.
