Angerís Blaze


Away with youÖ
just pass me by
I see the evil in your eye.

You taunt and tease each new conquest
true faith in God you dare to test.
Your wicked ways are cold as stone
your essence chills me to the bone.

You tug and pull on every soul
you laugh out load as pain unfolds.
You poison hearts of those you steal
their weakness trusts your tainted deal.

You slip through lives and gloat at pain
another soul you hope to gain.
But, those that have enduring strength
will use a shield thatís heaven sent.

You think youíre cunning, even bright
but, I will always choose the light.
You canít fool me, I see right through
the mask that hides the real you.

Emotions stir from depths within
every time you taunt with sin.
The blazing anger felt inside
is hatred toward your vicious lies.

Iím maddened by your tricky plan
to turn me from the Son of Man.
For donít you see I am not weak
the love of God Iíll only seek.

The Lord protects me every time
you dare to spread your filth and slime.
For when I see your traps ahead
my steps will follow where Heís led.

You have no place among the chosen
for you, the Pearly Gates are frozen.
You loathsome soul, just get away
my love for God will never stray.

You know Iíve got the only One
who speaks the words ďThy Will Be Done.Ē
His voice is one I choose to hear
His holy presence Iíll keep near.

Away with youÖ
you wicked thing
itís heavenís praises I will sing.

A really good job. No glitches in the rhythm that I could detect and encouraging to all of us to use our anger against the real enemy and not innocent bystanders.

There is a nice flow to your poem. The words speak volumes... very creative entry on "anger." Unique angle. Great job!
Blessings, Lynda
