(Note: Many times we brand someone a loser if she or he fails to earn a certain sum of money, or fails to become a CEO or to paint that famous canvas. Clement Moore, author of The Night Before Christmas, was considered a failure by many of his contemporaries. We all know this lovely poem by memory even today. Was Moore truly a failure?)
 
 
 
There will be no losers in heaven, I say
Each will be some kind of champ
There will be no deadlines to stress one out
Or racking one’s brain as to what life’s about
 
There will be no hatred, there will be no envy
In this kingdom built without locks
There will be no thieving, no soul deceiving
No sudden shocks or pox
 
There will be no encyclopedias, no dictionaries, Bud,
For knowledge will not require sweat
There will be, yes, abundant love and happiness
To prove I’m not high, I’ll take your bet.

Good write, You have it exactly what heaven will be right. Many people do not live good enough to be able to reach heaven. That isthere own faults. God is a loving person and does not want anyone to perish.

I agree with this, people see others as failures when the real success is in trying, thanks for making us think.

Well dear Randall with poems like this you can be sure failure will never be applied to you! It's a shame how easily humanity puts name tags on people I never liked the practice, and wish our culture could mature beyond it.

Love,
