In a world with so much pain,
a sentenced "fellen" I'll remain,
convicted by a force of three,
my life was sealed eternally.

I remember how it all went down,
how I became "heaven" bound,
I tried to commit suicide,
and yes, that night i almost died!

Standing over me, looking down,
his eyes were misted, his face was frowned,
"Hang on my dear" he said to me,
death will never set you free.

The policemen knew I felt no shame,
I barely could recall my name,
and at that moment I felt no pain,
I knew I now was thought,"insane.

In my mind, I saw a judge,
he wore a smile, no hate, no grudge,
I saw two others standing by,
one spoke with authority,
the other with pride,

He said I have commanded thee,sence your day of birth,
to plant some seed and water the earth,
to help the needy and the poor,
but in my face, you shut the door

"For on the cross, I paid the price,
to give you hope, a fruitful life,
and in return you've opened wide,
that dreadful door called "suicide.

I should send you straight to hell,
a burning fury, eternal jail,
but sence I love you, have no fear,
I'm always with you, always near.

The policemen saved you for one reason,
to die that night was not your season.
your life, you tried to end that day
so for this action, you must pay!

You're hereby sentenced to "servitude",
a worthless life, you must elude,
there's much to, forget past pain,
help usher in the latter rain.

I am thee "ALMIGHTY"
and the others you see
combines our force, THE TRINITY.

A good effort! Needs some work on grammar and rhyme! Keep reading and keep writing!

Loved the title and the story. This is powerful-great last verse-though slightly out of rhythm.

This was good! I especially liked the first three stanzas!

A very good testimony! A little work on spelling and grammar and it would be top-notch! Good work!
