Reading In Darkness

You heard of me,
And you were curious,
About the magical,
Writing skills that I possess.

It gave you pleasure to think,
That you could be,
Just like the swanky poets,
Who are always following me.

You let me seduce you,
With my charming rhymes,
And destroy your morality.

I didn’t have to touch you,
To get inside your head.
I’m already everybody’s idol,
And soon, you’ll also be,
Another grateful dead.

The Struggle To Believe

It is true, that fear wants you to live.
But isn’t it obvious, that rage needs to die?
You don’t have to feel near death,
To be grateful you have breath.
I know you’ve ignored the words of Jeremiah,
For a very long time.
But I will give you, one final warning.
Your under-world curiosity,
Will only make your heart numb.
And you can’t retreat,
When the battle is done.
The devil and his demons want it all, to end!
God and His Angels need you to be born again.

I Don’t Need It Anymore

Jealousy,
Vanity,
Bigotry,
Infidelity.

Lying,
Cheating,
Stealing,
Bingeing.

Spiteful,
Lustful,
Neglectful,
Deceitful.

Malice,
Avarice,
Prejudice,
Cowardice.

Laziness,
Selfishness,
Drunkeness,
Lawlessness.

I’ve had enough,
To last me a lifetime!

All those old vices,
Have served their purposes.

They’ve inflicted much pain
And left permanent scars.

They’ve opened my eyes,
And seared my brain.

I’ve learned my lesson,
I’m ready to repent.

Oh Jesus, please bless my heart,
And make it new.
