My Vision Of Hell

MY DREAM OF HELL

IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS A POWER, A PERSON OR AN ORGANISATION. THEY OR HE WAS TRYING TO TAKE OVER OUR TOWN. THEY OWNED A GIANT FACTORY AND INSIDE THEY MANUFACTURED THE MOST DISGUSTING ROBOTS. THESE ROBOTS HAD THE APPEARANCE OF HUMANS BUT THEIR BODIES WERE LIKE INSECTS BECAUSE THEY HAD MANY LEGS AND WHEN THEY MOVED, THEY LEFT TRAILS OF SLIME AND DISGUSTING DEBRIS BEHIND.
OTHERS HAD HUMAN HANDS BUT WITH KNIFE LIKE FINGERNAILS. ALL HAD HUMAN TYPE FACES, BUT COVERED WITH BLOOD OR INSECTS CRAWLING ALL OVER THEM. SOME HAD EYES HANGING OUT, BUT ALL SEEMED TO BE TALLER THAN BUILDINGS AND FOCUSED ON THEIR MISSION. TO TAKE OVER US ALL, TO MAIM PYSICALLY HARM US AND US UNTIL WE COULD STAND THE PAIN NO LONGER, TO TAKE OUT OUR INSIDES WHILE WE LIVED OR TO HARM OUR CHILDREN BEFORE OUR EYES. TO DESTROY THOSE WE LOVED AND STOP US FROM HELPING AND TO ALLOW US TO LIVE LIKE ANIMALS, EATING AND HUNTING EACHOTHER ALIVE.
WE ALL LIVED IN HOUSES BUT I FOUND ONE HIGHER THAN THEIR HEIGHT AND BUILD A GARAGE WITH A HUGE CARPARK AND A SPIRAL EXIT AND WE DAILY BUILD A TUNNEL THAT COVERED MORE AND MORE DISTANCE FROM THE ENEMY. FROM OUR HIGH BUILDINGS, WE COULD SEE THEM COMING FROM A DISTANCE AND SO I GOT EVERYONE I LOVED TO COME AND STAY WITH ME. SO THAT WHEN THEY CAME, WE COULD SEE THEM. SOME WERE FUTILE AND THOUGHT THIS WAS POINTLESS AS THEY COULD GET US ANYWAY, BUT I WASN’T GIVING UP.
WE HAD NEVER TRIED TO ESCAPE BECAUSE WE WERE SO FRIGHTENED TO EVEN GO THROUGH IT ALTHOUGH WE KNEW IT WAS INEVITABLE. SHOPKEEPERS OPENED SHOPS HIGH UP LIKE MY HOUSE AND SOME NOT ALL OF US WERE SAFE, AS LONG AS WE KEPT WATCH. BUT THEY COULD COME AT US AT ANY TIME. WE WATCHED THEM DESTROY PEOPLE DAILY AND IT WAS AWFUL. ONE OF US ALWAYS HAD TO STAY AWAKE BUT WHEN THEY CAME, WE SAW THEM AND SO MANY OF US, RUSHED TO GET TO OUR CARS AND DRIVE QUICKLY DOWN THE SPIRAL PASSAGE WAY AND AWAY BEFORE THEY COULD CATCH US. WE WATCHED THEM TRY TO CATCH UP BEHIND US BUT OUR CARS AND OUR DETERMINATION OUTWITTED THEM FOR THEY WERE ONLY MACHINES AND WE HAD BEAT THEM WITHOUT OUR HUMAN MINDS.
BUT THE EVIL ONE WHO WANTED TO CONTROL WATCHED BY IN DISMAY AS HE HAD FAILED IN HIS ATTEMPT. I COULDN’T SEE HIM BUT I COULD FEEL HIM AND ALTHOUGH WE DROVE FAR AWAY FROM HIS PHYSICAL PRESENCE I KNEW HE WOULD GET TO US IN ANOTHER WAY. THE OUTSIDE WAS IN DARKNESS AND WE ALL LIVED IN FEAR.
THEN I SAW THIS WAY OF LIVING LIKE A VISION OF HELL WHERE DARKNESS PREVAILS AND EVERYONE WAS LIVING IN A STATE OF UNCERTAINTY AND FEAR. OTHERS CONTROL THEIR LIVES AND THEY LIVE IN CONSTANT TURMOIL ABOUT WHEN THOSE WHO CONTROL WILL TAKE OVER THEIR LIVES.
EVIL WAS THE CONTROL, AND IT WAS EVERYWHERE. SOME WOULD TRY TO BOARD UP THEIR HOUSES BUT THAT DIDN’T WORK BECAUSE THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE AT SOME STAGE. SOME TRIED TO KEEP THEMSELVES LOCKED IN, SENDING OUT A MEMBER OF THEIR HOUSEHOLD TO BUY ESSENTIALS. BUT THAT MEMBER WOULD COME BACK, FILLED WITH EVIL, AND EVERYONE WOULD SCREAM WITH FEAR AND TERROR AS THEY BECAME OVERWHELMED BY THIS FORCE AND DOOMED TO LIVE WITH THE DARK SIDE FOREVER.
THEN THERE WAS ME, I HAD WATCHED A VIDEO ALL ABOUT WHAT THE EVIL POWERS WERE DOING TO US ALL. IT WAS DREADFUL. WHEN THESE PEOPLE’S LIVES WERE TAKEN OVER, THEY LOOKED LIKE FREAKS, AND WERE MAINED WITH DREADFUL DISFUIGUREMENTS. SOME HAD EYES AT THE BACK OF THEIR HEADS, SOME WAS SO TALL IN HEIGHT, SOME HAD HIPS WHERE HIGHER THAN NORMAL, AND OTHERS HAD MATTED UNRULY HAIR. THE NEWLY CORRUPTED WORE RAGGY CLOTHES BUT THE TRULY CORRUPTED DRESSED IN CRISP EXPENSIVE ARMANI TYPE BUSINESS SUITS AND LOOKED LIKE MAFIA HIT MEN. BUT ALL HAD EYES THAT SEEMED WITHOUT PUPILS OR COLOUR AND SHOWED UP SO BLACK. IT WAS DIFFICULT TO SPOT THOSE THAT CORRUPTED THE MOST BECAUSE THEY WERE VERY HANDSOME OR BEAUTIFUL BUT OCCASIONALLY THERE WAS A RELUCTANT TELLTALE SIGN AS THEIR EYES GLISTENING OR SHONE LIKE TWO RED TINY HEADLIGHTS. THESE WERE THE WORSE TYPE THE CORRUPTERS, THE TRULY EVIL, WITHOUT ANY CONSCIOUS OR REMORSE. ALTHOUGH I COULDN’T SEE THE PROCESS OF THEIR EVIL TAKEOVER, THE VIDEO MADE ME FEEL THE TERROR AND DEVASTATION OF WHAT THEY COULD DO TO PEOPLE IF THEY TOOK CONTROL. THIS CONTROL LEFT PEOPLE PARALISED IN AN EXCRUITING PAIN IN THEIR HEARTS AS THEY REALISED THEY COULD NEVER LOVE AGAIN AND WERE VICTIMS OF BLACKMAIL, BRAINWASHING AND LIVES FILLED WITH FORCED UNCOMFORTABLE ACTIONS AND TERRORISING THOUGHTS.
IN THE BEGINNING I WATCHED THE VIDEO IN TERROR AND WHEN MY SON HEARD THE DOOR RINGING I SHOUTED, NO, FULL OF ANXIETY IN CASE IT WOULD BE ONE POSESSED BY EVIL.
THEN GOD SPOKE TO ME FROM SOMEWHERE. HE SPOKE CLEARLY ABOUT HOW I COULD LIVE AND OVERCOME THE WORLD’S FORCE. HAVE NO FEAR, FACE THE EMENY STRAIGHT ON, LOOK HIM IN HIS EYES AND SAY “I HAVE THE PROTECTION OF GOD, YOU CANNOT TOUCH ME,” AND KEEP REPEATING THAT. SPEAK, “GOD IS WITH ME, YOU CANNOT HARM ME OR COME INTO MY LIFE.”
SO WE ANSWERED THE DOOR AND FACED THE EVIL MAN AND HE STOOD ASIDE US IN THE CORRIDOR AND LEFT US PASS AND I SPOKE QUIETLY, ALTHOUGH HE HEARD, “YOU CANNOT TOUCH US, GOD HAS GIVEN ME HIS PROTECTION.”
I WANTED TO FILL MY HOUSE WITH SIGNS OF GOD, CROSSES, PRAYER BOOKS, ETC. TO SHOW THEM NOT TO WASTE THEIR TIME, ALTHOUGH I WAS STRONG ENOUGH TO PUT UP WITH THEM ANYWAY. BUT I WANTED TO MAKE A STATEMENT FOR THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO PERHAPS FELT FEAR, UNCERTAINLY, I WANTED TO SHOW THEM HOW THEY COULD LIVE THROUGH THIS WITHOUT BEING POSSESSSED.
I WALKED WITHOUT FEAR THROUGH THE TOWN. OUTSIDE IT WAS DARKNESS EVERYWHERE, NO LIGHT.
FOR GOD SAID I AM THE LIGHT, BUT NOBODY WAS LISTENING AND THE DARKNESS HAD TAKEN OVER. THE TOWN SEEMED OLD AND PEOPLE KNEW ONE ANOTHER LIKE THEY WERE ALL IN A GIANT SCHOOL. GROUPS HUNG AROUND OUTSIDE SHOPS AND THERE WAS MAYHEM EVERYWHERE. I COULDN’T SEE ANY CARS THROUGH THE MAIN PART, THEY HAD TO DRIVE OUTSIDE AND THIS WAS DIFFICULT BECAUSE THE EVIL WANTED ALL POWER AND TRANSPORT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.
I WENT TO CHECK THE AIRPORT AND WALKED WITH KIM. THOSE TAKEN OVER BY EVIL MANNED IT. KIM WAS BLIND TO THE EVIL ONES BUT I COULD SEE THEM AND WALKED CLOSE BESIDE HER, ALL THE TIME PRAYING LOUDLY, I HAVE THE PROTECTION OF GOD SO THEY WOULDN’T TRY TO HARRASS ME. ALL AROUND THEY APPROACHED THE INNOCENT AND CORRUPTION SEEMED SUCH A PAINFUL THING FOR THEM.
I PASSED THE “TEMPLE” THAT THE EVIL ONES WERE BUILDING, AND SAW ON THE EAVES OF THE TALL RUN DOWN BUILDINGS PEOPLE WHO SEEMED FROM A DISTANCE TO BE ALMOST HAPPY TO BE POSSESSED BY THE EVIL. THEY CROUCHED ON THE EAVES LIKE GIANT BATS AND SMILED AND JEERED AT ME. BUT I SAW CLOSE UP SOME OF THE FACES OF THOSE WHO SWEATED TO FINISH THE “TEMPLE” AND I SAW A LOOK OF DESPERATION AND SADNESS, ALMOST A PLEADING, “CAN YOU SAVE ME FROM THIS, HELP ME” BUT I COULDN’T BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN TO GOD.
I LOOKED FOR TINO BUT MY MUM SAID HE WAS WORKING IN THE RESTAURANT. THERE WERE HAVING AN OFFICE PARTY AND HE HAD BEEN CALLED IN TO MAKE THE COFFEES. “I AM NOT A FOOL MUM,” I SAID. “ HE DOESN’T MAKE AN EFFORT TO GO TO WORK TO MAKE COFFEE, THEY WOULDN’T PAY HIM FOR JUST THAT.” WE WALKED TOGETHER TO HIS RESTAURANT AND MUM WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT DAD, AND I SAW BEHIND HER THE SHAPE OF EVIL LOOMING STRONGER. “STOP MUM, DON’T CRITICISE, IT GIVES THEM A CHANCE TO TAKE YOU OVER.” AND SHE LISTENED AND WE WALKED IN SAFETY. IN THE RESTAURANT, I SAW TINO ON THE RECEPTION AND IT WAS FULL OF PAYING CUSTOMERS. THERE WASN’T MUCH FOOD AROUND THEN, AND I WAS ANGRY THAT HE HADN’T TOLD ME HE WAS COOKING FOOD AND INVITED MY CHILDREN. I REALISED WHY THEN BECAUSE HE WOULDN’T MAKE ANY MONEY ON US. I SAW A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG GIRL WITH BOBBED BLOND HAIR HELPING OUT AND I KNEW HE HAD SOME INVOLVMENT WITH HER; SHE WAS STILL INNOCENT TO HIS INTENTIONS. I FELT ANGER WELL UP INSIDE ME AND THEN I FELT THE PRESENCE OF EVIL STRONGER THAN EVER AND I STOPPED. I PRAYED AND FELT BATHED AND SOOTHED AS GOD REASURRED ME NOT TO WASTE MY TIME FOR HE WAS ALREADY TAKEN OVER BY EVIL. I LEFT QUIETLY AND FELT ONLY RELIEVED THAT I HAD SEEN THE REALITY.

I WALKED PAST THIS CLUB, FILLED WITH MUSIC AND STRANGE PEOPLE HANGING AROUND OUTSIDE. SOME BECKONED ME TO GO IN AND I KNEW I SHOULDN’T AND HESITATING UNSURE FOR ONCE OF WHETHER GOD WANTED ME TO FACE THIS SITUATION OF WALK AWAY.
INSIDE I SAW PEOPLE DANCING, THE CEILING SEEMED SO HIGH I COULDN’T SEE THE TOP, AND IT WAS FULL OF ALCOVES FOR PEOPLE TO SIT DOWN AND DO WHATEVER….

I FELT A STRANGE SENSATION AS SOMEBODY APPROACHED ME AND TRIED TO ENCOURAGE ME TO BECOME INVOLVED WITH THEM. THEIR APPEARANCE WAS SO HANDSOME OR BEAUTIFUL, I FOUND MYSELF TAKEN AWAY, AND DIDN’T STOP TO LOOK PAST THIS. I FOLLOWED THEM TO AN ALCOVE AND FELT MY ADRENALINE RUSHING, THIS WAS EXCITING, I LIKED IT, BUT I ALSO FELT SOME FEAR, SOME UNCERTAINTY. FROM SOMEWHERE I KNEW THESE FEELINGS WERE NOT FROM GOD AND I FOUGHT WITH MYSELF NOT TO GIVE INTO THIS TEMPTATION.

I HEARD HIS WORDS OF WISDOM IN MY HEAD, CLEARLY.
GOD SAID TO NOT GIVE INTO THE TEMPTATIONS OFFERED, LUST WAS STRONGER THAN WE REALISED. HE HAD TOLD ME WHAT RUINED US, WHAT ALLOWED US TO WALK THE DARK PATH. UNFAITHFULNESS TO A PARTNER WHO LOVED YOU, GREED, ANGER, BITTERNESS, LOSS OF SELF CONTROL, CRITICISM, JUDGING OTHERS, FEAR, HESITANCY AND INDECISION (THESE TWO THINGS ALWAYS GAVE THE EVIL A CHANCE TO SLIP IN THERE TOO). THE DARK PATH WAS FULL OF PEOPLE WHO WEREN’T PREPARED TO GIVE UP THEIR WRONG WAY OF LIVING, THEY WEREN’T STRONG ENOUGH TO SAY NO TO THE BAD TEMPTATIONS IN LIFE, AND THEY HADN’T ENOUGH LOVE FOR EACHOTHER TO CARE. EVERYTHING WAS NOW FOR THEM, THEY COULDN’T THINK ABOUT TOMORROW OR THEIR FUTURES OR PLAN TO HAVE A NORMAL LIFE HAPPY WITH SOMEONE BECAUSE THEY KNEW THEY WOULD DESTROY THAT OTHER PERSON. LOVE WASN’T IN THEIR LIVES, ONLY LUST AND INSTANT BODILY PLEASURES WHICH LASTED MOMENTARILY AND LEFT THEM FEELING UNFULFILLED UNTIL THEY HAD TO TRY SOMETHING MORE DISGUSTING JUST TO GET THEIR KICKS.
I SHOUTED OUT TO THE OTHER PERSON, NO, DO NOT LEAD ME DOWN THE DARK PATH I DO NOT WANT TO BECOME LIKE YOU, STOP, BUT I FORGET THEY HAD NO LOVE IN THEIR HEARTS AND ONLY WANTED TO DESTROY ME. FIGHT, IT IS UP TO ME, I CANNOT DEPEND ON OTHERS, ONLY GOD. LISTEN TO HIM, DO NOT GIVE IN, DO NOT GIVE IN AND THEN I WOKE UP.
