Golden gates of Heaven

Good Won’t Get You There

By Freda H. Babinski

I’m standing there in front of gates like none I’ve ever found

They shine like golden ribbons as they glide across the ground

I see the stairs that never end how brilliantly they glow

I start to climb and realize there’s nothing down below

Then suddenly the two appear yes they must be my guide

They didn’t speak or show their face while they were by my side

We reached the top and I was placed in line with everyone

The two so quickly disappeared I guess their job was done

Such purity was all around so it just had to be

The day that would determine where I’d spend

The line moved very slowly but since I’d been good and kind

I knew where I was going so I really didn’t mind

I watched so many walk away with wings as white as snow

The others were escorted out to where? I didn’t know

My turn had come to face the but much to my surprise

I didn’t feel so confident when I looked in his

I felt his power all around and nothing was the same

He opened up this golden book and asked me for my name

He said ” Where your name should appear there’s just a vacancy”

I said ” But God I’ve been so good please look again for me “

God closed the book and tiny angels wiped his away

He said ” I you’ll understand what I’m about to say

Do you recall that poor man who asked you for a dime?

You hurried passed and said to him that you did not have time

There also was a little who wanted you to play

Again you didn’t have the time and pushed the child away

In line while at the grocery store she tried to hurry so

You grumbled as you passed her by because she moved to slow

You see, I came so many times but you turned me away

So now I don’t know who you are I’m sad for you today

If I’m not living in your you can’t be free from sin

So being good is not enough you must be

The two appeared just like before they stood close by my side

This time I saw their faces and became so terrified

Through tears I was escorted to my final destiny

I had no one to blame at all except for one, just me

Then suddenly a ringing sound completely filled my head

I opened up my eyes and found that I was still in bed

Through sweat and tears I realized how real our dreams could be 

And then I wondered just how long that God would wait for me

That night I gave my heart away I’m Born Again through  

God proved to me with so much love that “Good Won’t Get You There.”
