Piously Content
Ears filled with the sound of heavenly choirs
Singing about peace and contentment. How
Happy I am. The scent of white flowers
Fills my nose. And in my heart, a new vow? (Heavenís trow.)
Piously I listen, not thinking what I
Could (Should) have done to end the struggle fellow
Beings endured. Iím content and contrite,
Why should I worry about whatís below?
My life was privileged, I knew nothing
Else. That humanity was hurting in
Great distress, contently I knew nothing,
I am not the cause of their misfortune?
Should I bother with others' misfortune?
(Why bother with simple indiscretion?)
During life, larger issues were pondered,
I had no time to let my mind be bent.
Now Iím reaping the path that I wondered,
I'm in heaven, shouldn't I be content?
(In Heaven, I piously sit content.)
