Was It Heaven Or Hell Poem by Crystal Pierce

Was It Heaven Or Hell

Rating: 5.0

Was it heaven or hell?
Old as they were to young to know.
I hope they are well,
wherever they go.

They cursed on Fridays,
and prayed on Sundays.
So how could I know,
where they may go?

They were kind souls,
but their life was filled with holes.
I wonder what they were thinking, when they died.
Did the Death Angel look them in the eye?

There are many questions to ask,
but I'll wait for someone else to pass.
So what was it, did they do life swell.
It's either heaven or hell.

Thank you Jenie Franksay. And to be honest I got the idea from Mark Twain. He wrote a short story called Was It Heaven or Hell, and it was about two old sisters you had never lied and then fell sinful when their niece and great niece fell ill. And I probably just bored you to death with that but that's the story and I'm sticken to it. Haha

Stray thoughts coming out of a sad person upon the death of a friend trying to find answers to some obvious questions about after life. Thanks. They were kind souls, but their life was filled with holes. There are many questions to ask,
