On the Other Side

I walked into a tunnel of blue
light and on the other side I
saw a world where mothers
hold babies, where muscle
men fall down, where ships
fly, where men take care of
men, where there is a castle,
where cats cry out loud, where
women have wings, where
birds sing, where there is a
heaven.
