My new poem---Beyond this world there lies another

Beyond this world there lies another

Beyond this world there lies another
Peopled by shades that walk among the trees
Elysian Fields the beckoning meadows
The gathering dark the gentle breeze

Stand as in a trance, entranced
On the shore Charon awaits
With his humble ferryboat
Lights upon the water dance

The trip across the river Styx
Who waits upon the shore afar?
For those aboard to disembark
Stumbling blindly in the dark

Who guards the gates of Hades
Cerberus with his three heads
A devilish trinity of sorts
To gather in the souls that dread

Once the ferry crosses over
To the shore of no return
Once the gates behind souls close
Open others at key’s turn

Entry to the netherworld
Place of light, hole of dark
Fate of souls whose lives unraveled
Eternal rest the disembarked
