A Place Called Purgatory


There is a place called Purgatory,
A place far beyond the universe
Where Divine servants are waiting there,
Assisting one shortly after their last breath
To enter the Pearly Gates with the utmost care.

There is a place called Purgatory,
A place of temporary suffering and misery
Where punishment never seems to sway,
And one must atone for all their sins
To become fit for Heaven in God's way.

There is a place called Purgatory,
A place where there is no tomorrow,
A Hallow Ground in sort of a religious way
For those who died with a marred soul,
Seeking Divine sanctification during their stay.

There is a place called Purgatory,
A place you may go to after death
Where sinful multitudes lament and wait,
Making redemptions to amend their soul,
Hoping to climb the stairs to the Golden Gate.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
