For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a huge stone angel guarding a city within its two wings.
When I was alive, I swore there was no hell. I was right. That is why I have been sentenced to this purgatory instead.
I spent my entire life cheating and hurting the people of this fair city. I did whatever I felt like doing no matter how negatively it impacted others. I only cared about myself while living in the physical realm. I cheated. I stole things that weren’t mine. I abused family and friends as well as strangers. I lied to everyone. I was a blight on this city. I gave nothing positive to anyone or anything.
Now my penance is to watch over this city in perpetuity. I must make sure no one is ever hurt by the likes of people who care only about themselves. It is a fitting retribution. This city will benefit from my protection.
