The Way To Heaven - Poem by D.J. Ray

the way to heaven is easy
but the way hell is fast
the way to heaven is easy
but the way to hell will last

the way to hell is foolish
but the way to heaven is strong
the way to hell is foolish
cuz the way to hell is wrong

the way to heaven is perfect
but the way to hell is fun
the way to heaven is perfect
but it's to hell we run

demons guard the gates of hell
as the moon before the sun
demons guard the gates of hell
so for that route i'm done

flying skyward ever higher
to reach the pearly gates
desperate to escape the fire
trying to escape my fate

my feet ring out on the rock
as out of hell i crawl
demon wings like shadows hang
over the burning wall

until i reach heaven hell no more
angles faces circling
around the holy door

begging old st. peter to please let me in
for i want my soul in heaven
not in hell again
