All I know is that at the edges of paradise
Stand those that wish to fall,
For they are to prideful to turn away
From there own damnation.
They rather embrace the joy of their insanity
Than to endure the scar of their hearts.
Who are these wondering soul
That lack the understanding of heaven,
And the act of repentance.
Don’t they know that all has already been forgiven.
Yet, I would guess
They have only failed to forgive themselves.
They comprehend regret
Far more than I do,
And a leap of faith
Maybe the only thing that can save there souls.
Maybe we that blind ourselves to the light of God
Stand in the lowest level of hell.
Holding ourselves ignorant to the torment that is around us.
Maybe those that wish to fall
That are destine fall into the grace of God.
Why do I look to those with their backs to this mesmerizing light,
And why do I feel a need to stand beside them.
