Light a Candle for Me

Updated on January 25, 2019

Living in the world has its earthly compensation

Was brought up as a gold-digger in my stressful nation

All the vices I could think of I pursued with devotion

The preaching of the Cross was met with trepidation

Lust and desires after the worst kinds of corruption

Were the things I pursued with reckless abandon

What "they" called SIN I called RECREATION

Now I'm "Living Large" in Hell and damnation.


The thirst is a killer in this horrible situation

Now I know the term for my behaviour is "abomination"

Regret is my drink and pain, my meditation

As I remember the chances I spurned without illumination

Now I am ready to accept full salvation

Get me out of here - even if I have to use levitation

All things are possible - so the Bible chooses to mention

Now I am the center of Hell's full attention


"What a great loss" - they said at my funeral oration

"He's resting in peace, but we believe in re-incarnation"

My friends all over earth all "grieved" with genuine "compassion"

And took my beer afterwards amidst cheerful discussion

The topic of their talk was geared towards Education

About the Climate change and the market inclination

Who , then will hear this great and loud reverberation

Of wails, gnashing of teeth and total devastation?

      Powerful message sent across...reminds me of the book, "Purgatory", where it says justification of the guilt is so remitted and debt of eternal punishment is blotted out to every sinner but no debt of temporal punishment remains to be discharged either in this world or in hell before the gates of heaven can be opened. But then again, that is for those who believes.

      Voted up and sharing. Thanks.

      mina, this is a powerful poem. I had to read it aloud to my husband, I was so impressed with it. There is so much meaning in these words. If only people would wake up to God's salvation.

      Thanks for a wonderful poem and I voted it up.
