From this day forward the rules have changed
security tightened, due to an enemy deranged,
set on my destruction, his plan thatís set in stone
to pass through my heart, without it being known;

In a war ancient as old Earth, a foe there with its first
shot it took at man thatís how its ground was cursed,
a lie that made it through minds which should have known
a weapon so deadly that Eveís deed he should condone;

Like with Adam so it is today, Satan will try to get on board
our hearts which God to Heaven has surly destined toward,
but our foe hates us as much as the original garden couple
so he does his all, to enter with temptations so very supple;

Squeezing through our checkpoints, our defenses getting past
until he can get on board on our minds if itís the last,
thing he does so Godís word we must know, see through every lie
spot on holy x-ray deadly weapons it warns will make us die;

Though we must deny suspicions, those evil against true brothers
we must at the same time not be ignorant of the others,
devices of old slue foot, to trip us up with his darts
and poison that which flows out of our unprotected hearts!

You say quite a bit in these four little verses. I enjoyed it. I'm not always sure that I understand all of the different levels of poetry but I did get some of yours. The last stanza really touched my heart.
