The best poem in the world!


I was shocked, confused,  bewildered
as I  entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it  all,
by the  lights or its decor.


But it was the folks in  Heaven
who  made me stare and gasp--
the thieves, the liars, the  sinners,
the boozers,and the trash.


There stood the kid from  seventh grade
who  swiped my  money twice.
Next to him was my old  neighbor
who  never said anything nice.


Herb, who I always  thought
would rot away in hell,
was sitting pretty on cloud  nine,
looking very well.

I nudged Jesus, "What's the  deal?
I  would love to hear Your take.
How'd all these sinners get  up here?
Was it God's mistake?.

And why's everyone so  quiet,
Please Give me a clue."
"Hush, child," said He  "They're all in shock.
No one thought that they'd see  you."

Judge NOT.

I love it!!  It's so easy to sit back and point fingers sometimes... Thanks for the reminder that we are all imperfect creatures and we all have our faults.
