September Creative Writing Challenge – Day 29: Heaven

Like a fairy tale where everyone gets a happy ending
A place to imagine after life
A story we tell to make ourselves feel better
What is heaven?

The desired alternative to whatever hell is like
Intense brightness and roadways paved with gold
Endless servitude marketed as gratuitous worship
What is heaven?

Heaven is whatever you make of it
It can be the here and now
Your own version of happily ever after—even if it’s not perfect
What is heaven?
