What if This Is Hell

What if this is hell
What if we are the dead
It makes sense
The murders, the rapes, the sorrow

I do believe it is a possibility,
So I am doing my best to
help others up and out
Inspiring them to follow their hearts.

Maybe the artists and the poets
are at the top level, almost ready for the giant leap
To the good place.
Maybe the murderers and the rapists 
have a long way to go

I do think I am right about this.
I am sold on it, because I have been invincible.
I have expected to die three times.
Yet, here I am. Alive? I doubt it.

Maybe our souls are crying because they
are aware that we are dead
Maybe this is hell.
It makes sense to me,
And it seems fair.

Tread lightly, my friend.
We are probably not supposed to know,
So go ahead and pretend ignorance.
I am only sharing this insight with poets and artists.

Wow Caren, this one certainly made me think and of course I don't really have an answer, but with all the evil around maybe, but then again there are many beautiful people here too. I suppose we will find out eventually; but not too soon I hope! Kindest thoughts Ann xx

My husband and I both think this is a level of hell, and that when we "supposedly die" we get to finally go to heaven, unless we do not deserve it, then we come back here and experience more hell until we finally make it to heaven.

It DOES make sense, even though I don’t believe in hell... so I won’t think about it too hard because if you’re right, I might spontaneously unexist. Which would be inconvenient given the length of my to-do list. Love it! Simultaneously fun and diabolical!

I may write a poem about myself being "simultaneously fun and diabolical". Love this term, and you know what poets do with ideas, Nina, especially what I do with YOUR ideas, my friend!
