Eternal Flame

This torment is much for me
It will forever be
None but myself to blame
In this eternal flame

Many did fore-warn
Of the fire that would burn
Where the worm never dies
Where there are bitter cries

I had a good chance
To escape this place
Now I`m in unrest
And perpetual regret

While I was on Earth
Right from my birth
I clinged to the temporal
And ignored the eternal

Oh I wish I could tell
Of this horror smell
To all, friend or foe
That do not know
