A Second Chance…
There are times when I dream that I believe outside my door is the gateway to the city of doom; nevertheless, each night when I sleep, I open the door walking into another sphere of everlasting pain, mentally and physically. No one pushes me through the gate, I walk willingly, and I feel confident that I can handle the tragedy that I know will be waiting for me.
Tucked deep inside the confidence is fear; within the fear, there are secret things, distrust, and lies. The darkness is the evilest; a blood-red moon framed by the stars hangs above me. Hearing strange tongues, frightful and shrill, filled with anger, strikes fear into my heart. Sometimes I weep as the outcries reach my ears, as I do not have a stainless claim to my own life. I fear for the souls, even the depths of hell may refuse them, and they will be lost forever in the darkness.
I question, is there hope with death? Will we have memories of the earth and the lives that remain when we are gone? The souls I hear are loud, their tears are blood red, and each crawl in vile mud. I lower my eyes. Will they have rebirth if they lived in blaspheming? Is this terrible wailing their fate?
A bitter flood rushed over me as each passed to their final resting place. They seem conscious of their nearing doom. In this darkness, each was given a second chance to feel the love of God upon their faces, but they refused. Afterward, the ground broke from beneath their feet, and I seemed to be sinking with them to a senseless dreadful shore, and I am afraid that I will not wake from this nightmare.
