Hope for a Heaven

heaven

What’s a non-religious man to do

if he doesn’t believe in heaven,

but he sees a cruel world that is sick?

So many deaths since last May.

So much hate poisoning what’s on my plate.

There has to be something better than this.

If heaven exists….

May it exist so there’s something better.

Something better than this place.

They say that hell is a real place.

Can it really be worse than this?

War, racism, sexism and greed.

For our sake, I hope there is a heaven.

Is it real?
It’s hard so say now when living in hell.

What’s a non-religious man to do?

Try and be strong,

but you aren’t trying to hear me.

You have church in the morning—

This after you stomped a dude at the club.

Just the day before, a kid lost his life.

Makes a non-religious hope for a heaven

cause there’s got to be a better place than this.
