Best Poem in the World

Open Your Mind to Open Your Heart


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 the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Bob, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloudnine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said,
‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’

What Does This Say To You?

If you’re like me, you’re feeling a rush of emotional shock right now with that last line.

Judge not and you will not be judged.  Many saints were sinners, and many sinners became great saints.

What message does this poem say to you?

    Everyone & everything comes into our life as a lesson of love. On a soul level all those who we believe to have caused us harm are simply playing a role in our play and when we realize that ALL experiences-especially the challenging ones – are opportunities for us to love and become even better.
