Halfway to Hell, Halfway to Heaven

Halfway to Hell, Halfway to Heaven

A Poem by Josh Anderson

When you feel caught between salvation and damnation


I spoke to God today 
And He said where have you been 
I was tempted to run away 
But where could I go 
Where could I go

I saw the devil at the crossroads 
He looked an awful lot like me 
I tried to look the other way 
But I couldn't escape
I couldn't escape

I'm not forsaken 
Just a little lost 
The toll that life's taken 
And my own personal cross 
Heart on the verge of breaking 
Where can I escape 
When I'm halfway to hell
And to heavens gate

I like this!! I don't know a lot about poetry but I think it's well written and I like the way you draw a person in.
