Heaven and Hell

Heaven and Hell

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

Just some thoughts

"



Is Heaven real or make believe? 

Is it a place that I’ll ever see?

Life with no sins where souls rest free

Will Heaven be a home for me?

 

Is Hell imaginary or is it real?

A home for those that like to kill

Life where souls are free to steal

Will Hell be a fire that I feel?

 

At times I question why we exist

In a world where sin is impossible to resist

They say for our sins Jesus died

So we can be forgiven for sins in our lives

 

What if God gave up on us a long time ago?

Started all over in a world we don’t know

And when we die there’s nowhere to go

No Heavens above, no Hell below

 

There’s really no way to ever tell

If there is a Heaven or Hell

I still choose to keep my faith

Hoping to one day find Heaven's gates

You wrote what everybody asks themselves. Is there an after-life beyond this world? Do we go to Heaven or Hell? What if there is no such thing and we just disappear into thin air. And that's it. But we hope and wish and pray that this is not the end. You asked and said it all. And with a nice flow too.

Thank you my friend... I am glad you liked it still :)
Great theme, very agnostic. But the issue is the flow. The rhythm is really bad and could use a lot of work. One line may have 6 syllables where the line below it has 13 or so. Other than that, it has a nice usage of grammar. Keep going!

Very nice poem with great contrast between heaven and hell. Indeed, there's no way to tell whether something we've never seen actually exists, especially when there are so many conflicting ideas about the life after death. But there are a lot of things we believe in that we cannot see, so I guess in the end it's all about viewpoints. Either way, very nice. Leaves a lot of room for people to think more about what they believe.

Faith is doing without knowing, believing without seeing, feeling without touching, listening without hearing... it is to completely give oneself over to a greater power so that life can be enjoyed without doubting what lies at the end. We have all asked these questions at points in our lives because we are all human and have a genetic predisposition to curiosity. Your last stanza summarizes it perfectly. Nice write Aaron!
