Paradise

She’d say,
‘oh, ohohohoh…
I know the sun must set to rise.’

– Coldplay (Paradise)

She expected the world, but her dreams are continually dashed.
She would run away in her dreams, dreaming of paradise.
Life would get unbearable but she would dream on.

‘This could be para-para-paradise’,
but it is also hard to make it so in one lifetime.
I’m aspiring for a true paradise – Amituofo’s Pure Land.

Upon reaching it,
may we better train myself there,
to swiftly return to create more paradises.
