Should I Mope Here In Hell?

This poem is about choosing heaven or hell.

Will I forgive and forget?
Am I willing and able?
Should I mope here in hell
While a feast fills the table?

As for everyone I’ve met
I’d like to prove that I’m right
As for all that have hurt me
I’d like them to feel contrite

Will heaven wait for me
Until I change my mind?
If I’m smug here in hell?
If my ego’s enshrined?

Why should I ever leave
This miserable hole?
To prove that I’m right
I would give up my soul

But I’ve come to find out
That my peers in this hell
Won’t listen to my words
Though I cry out and yell

I admit that I’m ailing
I have always known strife
But I’ve never been willing
To relinquish this life

A long time ago
I heard someone say
“Go towards the light
There’s a better way”

But I just don’t know
If I could bear the light
It might show that I’m wrong
I’d rather stay in night

Will I forgive and forget?
Am I willing and able?
Should I mope here in hell
While a feast fills the table?

    1. Heaven and hell are states of mind. We can take a small feeling that we have and extrapolate how we might feel if we entirely accepted and lived with that feeling all the time. If we don’t forgive, we gradually accumulate resentment that creates a hell for ourselves and those around us. I do my best to forgive myself and others. Thanks for commenting.
