#NaPoWriMo 25 / #100poeticanswers 43: Are We Born In Heaven At The Same Age As We Are When We Die, Or Are We Born In Heaven As Babies?

Another young theologian asks a question about heaven.

Heaven can only be a metaphor.

We die. We cease to be. And what comes after

If anything, cannot be comprehended

By us, or by our living, pulsing brains.

As such, assume that when we go to heaven

If we go there, we go as something new

And inexperienced. Yes, you could say

We’re reborn there as babies. If you like.

I can’t imagine angels changing nappies

Made out of fluffy clouds. Wiping the bottoms 

And tickling the chubby little cheeks

Of newborn souls. But you can. If you like.
