Life's a tornado speeding out of control,
coiling and winding throughout the soul.
Darkness swells to swallow the light,
leaving the body trembling in fright.
A soul fears to steal another step,
weary of failures...maybe a slip.
One day it's clear and every things alright,
obscurity creeps in to pass on the plight.
Robs the spirit from the heart,
roots insecurity, melancholy...tears it apart.
The soul struggles to keep a rock-solid mind,
nothing satisfies allowing the mind to unwind.
In the blink of an eye, a soul can be stolen,
as the devil's wickedness pulls on our hearts.
He'll snuff out a life...in a matter of time,
then walk on it like its nothing but slime.
A soul must take heed and remain in command,
don't allow Old Satan to seize the upper-hand.
Life is delicate and can be ripped apart,
if we don't examine our minds and our hearts.

God help us when we forget to consistently and constantly ask Him to search our hearts. Great writing and great reminder! How I thank God that though I be weak, He is strong and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
