Afterlife

It is the matter of heaven.
And what it will be.
Is right now.

For you
whatever you think
is how it will shape itself.

Those people who have returned
from the white tunnel
to hospital beds confirm this.

If you expect family,
family waits for you
with a hug upon arrival.

If you expect rolling hills
with fields and farms—
voila!

Harps and clouds.
Only if you truly desire them.
And wings.
