A Poem by JoeTye

A Story of how a new life can be a destination away, I don't like to share too much in these descriptions


Where is it that you would like to go?

A silent answer, you do not know

But you would like to move on, and with that you’re certain

So you enter the taxi and slam shut the door.


A Taxi takes a husband to visit his lover

A Taxi takes a child away from his mother

As you gaze out the window they see that you suffer

And with this pain you choose your destination


You sit silently as the driver hums to the radio

He follows the route he has made 5 times today

This is your first

This is your last


Red light, stop; but no time to turn back

A new life awaits the other side of this track

Listen to what you have been told

For it is time to do something bold.


The light turns green

And at the Taxis advance

A truck smashes the vehicle

Nothing awaits you


A Taxi takes a criminal from his cell

From a second chance, he prayed to do well

Light turns to darkness in a single spell

So how do we define Heaven and Hell?
