"I am only one lonely little man... / Just trying to get to heaven and just passing through hell"

Transcendental Sonnet #1226:
Alone and Exhausted at Four in the Morning

It dawns on me I have done all I can
Before dawn I see I have done my best
I could write some things now say some things but
It is better that I keep my mouth shut
If I failed one I passed another test

I am only one lonely little man

If only I could make it right somehow
My very uttermost seems not enough
I could really use a miracle now
Nobody can tell me I am not tough

I never give up even when it seems I might as well
Never having known success it never went to my head
So I always have to do my best until I am dead

Just trying to get to heaven and just passing through hell

I think we all pass through hell trying to get to Heaven, Stevie. Keep the faith and in time, all will be well and the sadness will pass. Happy birthday to Silke, by the way.
Take care, my friend,

I liked this. Similiar to what I believe, the only way for me to get to heaven, are the steps I take to stay out of hell. At times, its better to be fragile - then tough.
