At Eternity's Gate

A man should weep for himself

But not his fate

When he stands at eternity’s gate

Black lines chart a path

Back to every misdeed

And he should weep for these

But not for his current place

There at eternity’s gate

He can not stand the sight

Of his own face

His rotten gut

And his heart misplaced

He can hide behind tears

Regret every lost year

But it’ll all finally be effaced

Once closes behind him

Eternity’s gate
