Now Will Come Heaven On Earth - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

We see as others of our kind

You see as your kind

But

With a twist

You can touch to the Heavenly Realm

And

With this comes a price

You pay the price

Of knowing that a realm of beauty exists

In which justice is real

Goodness prevails

And

Love is the binding force of  our communities

To touch to this alternate reality

To feel alive

Gives one a different perspective

On living

Then

At the same time

Others can only intellectualize the possibility

Never knowing the reality

A difficulty in communication follows

To live in the world of man

Yet

Visit at times a world

That humankind may very well call

Heaven

Compassion grows

Clear seeing occurs

All that was once familiar

All that was comfortable

Now brings only sadness

And

A sense of loss

This will pass in tine

A realignment will occur

Within you being

That allows for the co-existence

Of both realms within your consciousness

This is not a mass realignment

But

A very personal and individual one

For others have not done the work 

Or

Paid the price

Of knowing that a better world

A humane world

Is indeed a reality

We support you in your efforts

For others will follow this path

A few at first

Then

Many

A new joy arises

In the hearts of man

And

Colors the landscapes of your lives

Common sense

And

Clear seeing

Return to your world

Reason arrives

Then

Love follows

The darkness flies

As the Light from our world enters

Healing occurs

And

A balance is restored

Upon the Earth

Man is reborn

As the heart awakens

Humanity lost is

Now

Humane-ity found

The pain

And

Sickness

Created by man

Will no longer exist

Now

Will come the

Calmness

And

Certainty

Of Spirit

And

A joy in living

Now

Will come

Heaven on Earth

Note:  I wrote this on August 4, 2013 and first published this today as the last blog entry in Inspirational August.  I debated on whether to post it as an Inspirational writing or as a poem and as I reflect,  I suppose it is in reality, both.   The form does not rally matter as much as the reader getting it or as I'd like to think being touched by the words in some heartfelt manner.

So now this month of inspiration comes to a close but hopefully continues from time to time in our everyday living.
