NOTE:  Please use descretion when reading, this Writing Piece may be a bit dark, or despairing to some.


What do you suppose it is?
Rejection rising from bed
Neglect embracing misled
Loss in darkest sorrow
Handicap dreading tomorrow

A loved ones last goodbye
The reigns of old age tearing a sigh
A carriage of galloping remorse
The weight of a wayward child in discourse

A heart broken from loves impair
Abortion finalised no chance for repair
Betrayal laughing at innocence
Deceit riding truths absence

Poverty feeding on skeletal bodies
Drugs nourishing the addicts remedies
Money buying the soul trading
Pornography violating visiting profanity

War at peace with atrocities
Slaughter alive in violence
Brutality hungry with cruelty
Rape violating purity

Loneliness alone unaided
Single mothers without care, devastated
Betrayal of lifelong vows
Defraud duped, cheating allowed

Facets of hell all these featured
In the vicinity of hell, all life butchered
No light, no love, no escape
Darkest separation intend to rape
Voices to and fro echo in terror
Horror of deep proportion mock, mirror

A lifetime an eternity seemed
Yet hell decided a lifetime unredeemed
Life’s turmoil and pain, now a blink of an eye
Others, warned and beseeched, they tried
Deception deceived me to believe a lie
Party, revelry, carousing, insured
Played I was in hells mocking allure

Now reserved a heated, dark, abode
No care, no feelings, just loathing in forebode
No room to move from tormenting screech
Feeling around standard neech
In life I knew sorrow, pain, loneliness and loss
In hell I am doomed, damned, hopeless tossed

Hell, what do you suppose it is?

Once, somewhere, someone, told me He payed
the cost.

  1. Salwasamra, this is such a moving post to me, you are a talented and creative writer! Hell is truly many different things to the beholder, and whatever we percieve is our hell at any particualar time can completely wreck our lives, our loves, our families, even our relationships and faith in the Lord! So many things in the world can destory us, but with faith we can rise above its flames! Thanks for your beautiful poem my sister!
