‘To Hell With It’ by Ahmed Nader Gretly

I staggered amidst ashes of burning sin

Stepping through seas of vicious thorns

Eternally bleeding,

But never dying.


The giant mallets hammered on my tainted temple

Crushing my skull to a sickening crimson powder

Eternally dying,

But always reborn.


I was thrown into a pit of blazing fire

Which roasted my skin to a crunchy membrane

And cooked my flesh like a thanksgiving turkey

Eternally Burning,

But always conscious.


Hell engulfed me and never spit me out

For there is no escape from the fiery pit

Mortally a sinner,

Eternally ablaze.
