I AM

He dumpster-dives, this black-hat hacker.
Destroying lives, while sin makes blacker.
Employing deception, as he impacts
Directions bestowed on those he hacks.

Do what he wants, he pokes inside.
Deception flaunts, as wills collide.
Disobedience, his much-used tool.
Expedience, another, he uses to fool.

No purity, this Satan, this looter,
All heresy, to hack at our computer.
Steal and erase, exterminate security
Errors replace The Word in parody.

Clever and sly, he conceals his identity.
Promoting the lie; he's the real enemy.
His motives--- destroy, target the system,
Vile tactics employ, blue-screen all wisdom.

What holiday his? Maybe, April Fools?
You take the quiz; he's broken all rules.
Stroking the keys, this salvation attacker
Is nothing more than a hell-bound hacker.

~ ~ ~

A stolen identity? Me... hacked into Grace.
Seven times seventy, my sins doth erase.
He looks at me, white robe I wear.
His Son to see; no sin I bear.

The password given to all who believe,
Jesus is risen, free access receive.
Not stolen identity, but freely given
Paying my penalty, unlocking my prison.

Me, washed in white, by His paid in full.
Son dispels night as He washes my wool.
No longer am I; my identity's changed.
The great I Am had it all arranged.

So, if you're choking on a virus infection,
Be glad He's poking you in another direction.
No better Tutor to erase and replace
Your personal computer with Heavenly Grace.


Accept Jesus as Your Savior Right Now and be Certain of Eternal Life.

The message and the rhythm make this a very special piece. I can almost hear the accompaniment drumming out the beat of this narrative. So well done! Congratulations.

Oh, very good.

A few lines didn't fit for me with the rhythm of the rest of the poem, but that may just be me. :)

I loved the last part, especially.

Perfect! I love how you used the metaphor of Satan as a hacker into our soul, and how Jesus "erases" our sins. Very nice!

This is beautiful. My favorite part is not stolen identity but freely given. You said so much with these words.
