The first John was cute and innocent
The second John always brought sour fruits
The third John always put his hands on his head
The fourth John had the loudest laugh
The fifth John thought he was the most beautiful
Well, everybody knew that mirrors never lied
Laughed out loud and ignored its presence
No getting out of darkness, to hell they went
Hey, hell wasn’t that fearful as stated in the Bible!
In hell, they got everything they desired
The first John danced in all beats with no end
The second John ate all kind of sour fruits
The third John held a huge and most expensive crown on his head
The fourth John laughed and laughed endlessly
The fifth John was showered with praises as the fairest of them all!
He said, ‘I’m tired in hell. I am going back to my Dad’
Loser they called him and they forgot he existed
Then, the second John asked, ‘can I have sweets?’
‘Nope, in hell you get what you deserved,’ Satan replied
‘Satan, the crown on my head is heavy,’ the third one complained
‘Ha! Ha! It’s gold and beauty you want. Why complain?’
‘Satan, it is fine with me to feel other emotions too,’ the fourth suggested
‘Come on, are you sure? You who enjoy over other’s miseries won’t want that!’
The fifth John kept quiet, he was the most arrogant of them all
‘Do you think that I don’t know fifth John?’ Satan said
‘I am aware that you missed that light. My friend, no turning back!’
The four remaining monkeys had it all in hell
Yet, there was no satisfaction and that made their stay tormenting
The light of salvation never gave up on them
God’s people had strong hearts and authentic goodness
There was no happiness in hell, the little monkeys discovered
Thus, one by one, the other monkeys followed God’s men
Yet, the fifth John remained because he was stuck to his pride
He stayed in hell but he always remembered with regrets
The wounds unhealed and torturing miseries
God did sent the fifth John a hand to hold and be redeemed
Yet, he refused to see and believed in his own wisdom
The loving Almighty wanted all His children home
Even if the fifth John knew, he still walked away many times
Who is the luckiest then? Is it the one who has it all?
Is the pitiful the one who sees the light and loves truly and deeply?
They had fun feasting with the Devils but something was not right
God never surrendered even He saw the red flag
One by one He redeemed each and brought in true paradise
Yet, the last one never listened and suffered a perpetual sorrow
God never gives up on us but we just can’t see
How many people of God whom you refused to enter in your life?
Are you no different from the fifth John who chose to be in hell?
