VERSE | HEAVEN CAN WAIT

There’s someone you see who can use your help 
Above and beyond the 2.5 percent
That has been made obligatory on you
By forces of faith, of habit now too
Don’t think twice because you have done
Your duty as prescribed by the One
Go ahead, give some extra, don’t hesitate
Don’t hesitate. Heaven can wait

You’re going on your blessed Hajj number two
You’ve been good, devout and true
But the farmer working in your fields
He needs a liver transplant critically
He looks to you for a helping hand
Should you divert funds from your pilgrimage plans?
You’re caught up in a quandary of faith
Don’t hesitate. Heaven can wait

The colony that you pass everyday
The one with the shanties, a riot of grey
It’s residents are different, they don’t share your beliefs
But you’ve spoken to some, you’re aware of their dreams
Should you give of your blessed prestige
To those who believe in a separate deity?
God’s benevolence does not discriminate
Don’t hesitate. Heaven can wait

When you feel pulled in directions unique
That speak to your heart abundantly
But seem to lie in realms that are
On the twilit edges of well trodden paths
Still your cacophonous heart, and listen
To the flow of lifeblood in your veins
Let it take you up the streams it creates
Don’t hesitate. That’s where heaven waits.
