This is the truth,
There is no tie:
You go to heaven,
Or hell
When you die.
The choice is yours
On what road you take,
Its depends on the decision
That you make.


This is the truth,
It’s not a lie:
Christ died for you
Just once
His life to justify.
This gift of life
He gave to you for free
If you give it up,
Whatīs your destiny?


This is the truth,
It’s not a tie:
Good versus evil
Doesn’t qualify.
God is Holy pure and just;
Satan is the opposite,
Choose who you must.
I chose life.
I don’t want bust.


This is the truth,
It’s not a lie:
Right before you
Is lifeīs journey;
You cannot deny.
The wide roadīs easy,
The narrow one difficult,
But Christ is there
Within the tumult.


This is the truth,
There is no tie:
Christ died the righteous,
For the unrighteous
To sanctify.
Death has no victory;
It’s swallowed up in hell,
But your eternity without Christ,
Is there as well.


This is the truth.
Itīs not a lie:
You canīt afford to wait
Right up
Until you die.
Choose Jesus now
And live your life
With this sword of truth
That cuts like a knife.


This is the truth,
Itīs not a tie,
Choose Jesus
Choose heaven
Choose life,
I have,
Why live a lie?

This is really good. I like the repetition of the first two lines.

At first I had trouble finding the topic... And then the corrected meaning of "tie" hit me and it all made sense. My fault. Not yours. :)

Nice job with this.

This is very good, I enjoyed each and every word of it. It is so true, we choose heaven or hell, it's up to to us. I choose heaven, and I can see you do also. Lovely poem!

You're a beginner? Nah! This was just a clever piece. But I like Allison, just thought you stuck the word tie in there. It wasn't until her comment that I went back and looked and sure enough, there it was. There is not tie between heaven and hell. They are as different as they can be and we must choose. Good job finding a nice sound like for difficult with tumult. I really liked the message, the flow and the very clever "tie-in" of this whole piece. Thanks, great job.
