What Does Paradise Look Like



What does paradise look like?
Does it have bright lights and buildings around?
Does it have peaceful people?
Does it have dreams that are fulfilled instead of shattered?
Does it have everyone enjoying each other in harmony?
Does it have love and peace unlike the world we live in today?
Does it have no more pain and sorrow?
These questions many can ask about paradise,
Many might feel that paradise is just a dream,
Something that we fill ourselves with as we go through life,
Something that fills the corners of our mind,
As we see hurt and pain everywhere that we turn,
We seek these questions because we don’t know where to turn,
We don’t know the way to the peace and love that we so desire,
We don’t know the way to this paradise,
What does paradise look like?
Do we ever find the true answer to this question?
It seems too important to know the reason,
The reason behind the life we lead every day,
We struggle and twist,
We fight and we shake,
We feel every single emotion,
We keep seeking a way to be filled,
Filled with something we cannot name,
Filled with something we cannot put our fingers to,
Something that lies deep within our hearts,
Something that lies deep within our souls,
We want to know,
We want to experience peace,
We want to experience love,
We want to get rid of the hate,
We want to get rid of the fear,
But are we truly ready,
Ready to know what paradise looks like?
Are we ready to know what is required of us?
Are we done with trying to run the race of this life?
Are we done trying to do everything on our own?
And realize that we cannot?
Are we done with believing that we know the best?
For our lives?
We struggle and twist,
We fight and we shake,
We feel the emotions of our lives,
And we keep running,
Wanting to know what paradise looks like,
Wanting to know what we have to do to belong,
Is it something simple or is it complex?
Does it take a commitment?
What do we have to give?
To find the answer to knowing,
What paradise looks like.
