What Hell Looks Like?

I hear screams every night

Listen here lady, a mothers son dies everyday
Just go on back in bed and pray he’s in a better place

I hear moans every night

Bills gotta be paid, so legs gotta be spreaded, mouths gotta be open
My lil sister was once my little sister till daddy’s drugs became potent
Now we all alone, in the summer, with no fans, so the windows always remain open

I see fire every night

I hear it burns everything, even misery, pain
If you ever wished for a second, you ain’t have a brain
Right here now would be the perfect place

I hear cries every night

He don’t get enough of her
His fists are in love with her, more than him
They pay more visits to her body, more than him
Kiss her lips, more than his
But she stays cuz she say, she’s still waiting on him,

well I’m still here mamma

I heard that God, is all I got


Well, I’m still waitin on him, I’ve been patient for him
But my brother said God’s too busy in the sky
And his feet don’t ever touch the block

I overheard a couple talkin

The girl was 16 with her baby in her stomach
And the dude was lookin like he seen The devil in his wallet
She was lookin for God,
But deep down
knew she’d never find him
He said look,listen, all we can afford is this time and our choices
I imagined the kid, just listening
Like a kid raising their hand in a class for a teacher that never picked him
Life or death
He don’t get to choose how he a victim
And I all I can do Is pray for him

Dear Lord
I heard sirens, just last night
As I looked outside, I asked you
Is this what hell looks like?
If it is… Well… I’m already ready for it.
