Balancing The Scales

On My Journey through the Valley

 

I crossed a lake of burning fire

 

Surrounded by the screams of lost souls

 

I paid the ferryman for safe passage

 

To get me to the other side of the inferno

 

The sky became darker as we tarried along

 

The night black as the charred remains left behind

 

Briefly the Moon popped out as we docked into the harbor

 

The ferryman bid me adieu and said he could go no farther

 

I walked up to set of scales where a feather lay on one end

 

Weigh your burdens on the scale in proportion to the feather

 

I heard an ominous booming voice call out to me from above

 

How do I do that I asked for I knew not what he meant

 

The burdens are in your heart, the good and the bad you did in life

 

My heart was ripped from my chest and placed on the scale

 

The sum of my life must balance against the wisp of a feather

 

You died with sorrow and pain in your heart, you owe a debt to yourself

 

You may not pass at this time until you balance the scales
