His eyes told it all, all that he had been through within his lifetime.
The joyous and the sorrowful.
His eyes laid there open.
Able to see what was never previously seen.
The ghosts of his former relatives.
His eyes looked deep within the horizon.
Never to return.
HIs eyes seen fire.
Burning and smoke.
His ears heard the screams of the many people being afflicted
By this agonizing sensation.
His ears heard the malicious laughter of one of the guards standing near him.
He felt that same sensation of which were the others were being plagued with.
Felt the misery that the others felt.
He didn’t like it.
He hated it.
He despised it.
It didn’t feel like the pain that he inflicted upon himself
It was worse.
His eyes started to burn.
His throat started to swell.
He tried to scream again.
But not a sound escaped his lips.
The tears started to fall.
Cooling down what was a burning sensation on his cheeks.
He could only think to himself
When will this end?
When will I be able to go home?
I hate this.
I never wanted this!
All i wanted to do was escape from it all!
All I wanted was to just make it stop!
The constant glares.
I just wanted it all to go away.
I never meant for this to happen.
I didn’t ask for this!
Same as I didn’t ask for the life that I have been given.
If I knew that it would’ve turned out like this I would’ve stayed.
I would’ve ignored.
I would’ve prayed
I would’ve done anything to keep myself breathing.
And now I’m in so much pain that I can’t even breathe
I hate it.
I hate it all
I want to leave.
But I know that there is no escape.
Why did i have to be given such misfortune?
His eyes started to close
His mind started to wander.
Everything just went away.
The burning that he was feeling had subsided.
The sulfur, acid, and brimstone that he was inhaling has been released from his lungs
The screams had seized
Everything that he had experienced faded away
He opened his eyes
Only to find himself in a white room
With familiar people huddled all around him
A tear left his eye and made it down all the way to his now pink lips
The people around him started crying tears of pure joy
He wasn’t aware of what just happened
Or what happened to him.
All he knew that he was happy to be in a calming place once again.
“ My love!
I was so worried about you!
I thought I lost my precious child!”
He was relieved to hear such a voice.
