The dirty thick steam sloshed over my toes, splashed to my knees,
Filth with blood and flesh, maggots, stench beyond belief,
Is this for real or am I in some sort of a horror-able dream?
Put out the fire for it blinds my eyes and intensifies my pain!
Where am I, who put me here?
Did I make a wrong turn back there?
I expected long life and never did I plan for this!
My hopes and dreams are all amiss.
Where is the day, or is there only this night?
How can I change this and make it all right?
Beyond the veil of tears is there a glint of hope and bliss?
My years are less than twenty and no one ever told me this!
At least that is not how it seemed to me!
More time, I must have more time, where can it be?
My eyes seem glued closed and I cannot view!
Open my eyes and tell me this is not true!
Why oh why did I not believe Words that were said,
Yes, I was too young to become one of the dead,
“Get right with God, for you never know the day or the hour.”
I laughed to myself, for I knew I was in power.
While there was time, I should have heeded the call,
“Receive Jesus,” they said, “serve Him for He is all in all.”
If this is a dream, I pray that I will awake,
For it will be that I will amend -- for my own and others sake!
Now I understand, now I believe,
May I change my mind and now may I leave?
If I could go back I would be a preacher of fame,
While it is yet day, accept the Lord Jesus Christ and believe on His Name!
Yes, I would preach loud and clear,
Destruction is ahead for those who refuse to hear!
This is one place I wish for no one else to go!
By all means, I shout it - - HELL NO !
