It’s not that easy if you pray
to be accepted into heaven.
You first must live and learn and stay
on this old earth till level seven.
Life is a process full of learning
the ropes of how you really live,
to then enjoy what you are earning
loving the gift that moments give.
You have developed from your past,
experience your present care,
and knowing that it doesn’t last
you plan the future as you dare.
The difference at your life’s end
seems to be that it’s your past
which takes precedence in the end;
future is present and does last.
