Only one road leads to heaven
Though many roads lead to hell
That’s a fact I can’t hold back
It’s also one I know real well

When it comes to taking roads
Know that I have taken my share
At the end of the ones that lead to hell
I learned there is truly nothing there

So if you’re searching for empty
And you want to feel a lot of despair
Jump on in swim through some sin
Lose all those who ever did care

But always remember the other road
The one road that’s sunny and bright
Hopes never lost just pay the cost
And let your soul embrace the light

    I stand corrected, 'The Road Not Taken' by Robert Frost.

    All those roads I know all too well, each one of them sent me on a road through hell...but, I have faith & hope I'm on the right road now. Great write Michael. Reminds me of the poem 'The Road Less Taken'

    loved this poem and so heartwarming and true, except there is one road to hell. we may go through hell here on earth and their is lots of roads to go there. but the one and only hell there is only one road, refuse Jesus Christ when you die and it's hell you go. but i think you really knew that all ready.
