Clouding One's Will to Fight

 

Most see we all one day must die

As part of nature’s law

Seeing this life passing us by

Awaiting nothing more

 

Man’s foolishness is growing worse

Living this life in vain

Whilst ignorant of Adam’s curse

Darkness will surely reign

 

Today; of God there’s little fear

Living the devil’s lie

Oblivious that Christ draws near

To call His bride on high

 

A hardened heart will make us blind

Will plague one’s wretched soul

Fraught one’s spirit frustrate the mind

And rob us of our goal

 

Rebellion’s one of Satan’s ploys

With cheating, lies, deceit

In men in women girls and boys

He seeks to bring defeat

 

We must beware of Satan’s ruse

Aware each lustful ploy

Aware to bind aware to loose

Aware to keep life’s joy

 

If when to love our hearts submit

Love’s fruit will multiply

For through its use, all devils quit

And hate lies down to die

 

Reject the devil’s every ware

Though wrapped it seems in light

Such traps take captive all who share

And cloud one’s will to fight.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
