I’ve seen a valley, far and wide,
Through which many men may pass.
But only doves with wings to fly
Can hope to escape its grasp.
So many men will come and stay,
Tempted by its treasures;
Virgins, wine and war and spices,
The highest priced of pleasures.
But be you warned, for with the dusk
The eerie valley Fruit and Lust
Sheds its mask and shows its horrors
Of eternal pain and endless torture.
Forlorn, these souls of wicked and damned
Who did not love, but killed the Lamb;
And now within the Lake of Fire
Do they pay for their desires.
So be you wise, and be aware
To never wander out through there
With the Gluttons and the Sinners
Who all too often, the Valley enter.
To you my grave warnings are,
From Valley Pleasant, keep thee far.


The author's comments:
I've always been inspired by divine power. I also drew ispiration for this piece from the epic 'The Divine Comedy: Inferno', written by Dante. Although not the most religious of people, religion strikes me as the most powerful subject to write about.
