I KIND OF WONDER
 
I kind of wonder
What happen under
When super powers
Emptied of their powers,
When rival heroes
Grind themselves to zeroes.
 
I kind of wonder
How the rage of anger
That belch the bombs
That confined to tombs,
How the acclaimed braves
Themselves from death cannot save.
 
Its a feeling fonder
There is perfect peace under.
Above, what they fight themselves over,
Below, it brings together as lovers.
Above, eternal sworn fiends.
Below, lie together as best friends.
 
I kind of wonder
What would make them under
Not hesitate to drop the bombs
But raise no sound in their tombs.
They stand to yell with loud a voice
But lie together without a noise.
 
 
HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH
 
The way
The stars peep down as night
The moon-smile gleams down at night
The sun gaze with rays at noon
And the sky showers confetti at will.
No doubt
Heaven is a place on earth.
