    A Heart to Heart

    Upon a high arched mountaintop,
    where slope the sunlit green treetops
    and Sky’s foundation made of blue
    is Heaven’s bottom floor,
    a spiral staircase led straight up
    and smelled of fresh cake uncorrupt
    then emptied to a chambered room
    just past a chambered door.


    A Justice scale loomed silent there
    suspending plates each side on air
    and Osiris sat a jeweled throne
    of gold and blue and red.
    My time was up. It was too late
    to change my Life, to change my Fate
    when Anubis, large with jackal ears,
    said “Here we judge the Dead.”

    “One side the scale is placed your heart
    wherein wisdom rests from end to start.
    Man fools himself and thinks to gain
    but wisdom rests not in the brain.
    Lightened is the heart that lifts Humanity
    from evil, waste and a world’s insanity.
    Heavy is the heart that drags Man down
    to selfishly gain some feeble ground.”


    “And no lie or alibi from them fails to dupe
    the scale’s prime measurer, the Feather of Truth.
    For a lightened heart will not the Feather overtip
    but one made heavy will the scale down dip
    and the Devourer will come, croc jaws ice cold,
    to eat the hearts made heavy by the deeds of heartless Souls.
    But the lightened heart will pass to a cosmic clime
    where Souls commune the universe ‘til Resurrection time.”

    “Now your hour has come and you tremble with Fear.
    They’re bringing your heart. It’s close. It’s near.
    You’ve had a lifetime of heartbeats, true and untrue.
    Now their worth against the Feather is the measure of you.”

    "Step forward”

          Bobby Del Boy - Being judged may be a certainty we all face regardless of creeds, beliefs or religious upbringings. I guess it's never too late to change your Life. But if you wake up and hear someone say "Step Forward", it just might be. When it's time for my heart to be weighed, I would request that your wonderful words and those 10,000 likes be added to my side, which might be just sufficient enough to tip the scale in my favor and prevent a fate worst than death. Hallelujah! I'm feeling better already. LOL. Thanks BDB.................in advance! Namyh

            RhymeLovingWriter - The average heart weighs about 10 to 12 ounces. An immoral life increases its weight. A disrespect of others makes it heavier and a disregard for self adds tonnage. The Feather of Truth, which cannot be lied to, would detect the increase and there would be nothing you can do but accept the Fate you failed to change when you had the chance to live the golden rule and keep some poetry in your soul to lighten your heart. Mighty proud the message got through and I'll be adding your words at my heart's weigh in too. Kinda brightens the day when there's an RLW in it. Namyh

              your poem is awesome so realistic.i'm also interested to read and write poems. If you are composing a poem because you want to gain a feeling that you experienced, then you don’t need these tips. Just record whatever seems right. Only you felt the feeling that you need to show, so only you will know whether your poem captures. Before you begin, ask yourself what you need your poem to “take.” Do you want your poem to search for personal action, protest social injustice, describe the beauty of creation, or play with style in a certain way? Once you know the end of your poem, you can submit your writing to that goal. Take each main factor in your poem and make it serve the main goal of the poem. Alleppey houseboat booking is a great poem that gives mind freshness to everyone.
