The afterlife

Recognize 'him' and yours
will be the kingdom of heaven

I never wanted to live in a kingdom
Neither gold nor purity excite me
Where is the life in that,
what has it come after?

I want to bathe in your ribbon irises
I want to bake cookies with children
I want to grow old and fat
With stories to tell

My only royalty is earth
May they glory in her
