In the hills of Tennessee.
A blind man made a fatal choice
From which he could not flee.
Pressured by the stress of life,
And trapped within its spell,
The man whose name remains unknown,
His story I will tell.
Satan planted in his heart
Desire for grass more green,
Weaving low a spider’s web,
Glist’ning with a sheen.
Pretending to be sincere,
Medusa was her name.
Starting with a simple spark,
She fanned it into flame.
Knowing all the Christian words,
So fluent was her tongue,
She smiled and quickly earned his trust
While relationship was young.
The temptress from a foreign land
With evil sneer she hissed.
Unknown to him before that time,
She was a narcissist.
Surrounded by her wicked friends
Closely at her side,
Medusa spoke with measured words.
Her best friend was Pride.
One wintry day out of the blue,
She sent her wicked text.
Said she’s filing for divorce,
Leaving him perplexed.
Disguising her intentions well,
Medusa worked her scheme.
With no discussion, just deceit,
She shattered the man’s dream.
Reeling from the crippling blow,
As if thrown off a cliff,
His heart was dealt a fatal wound,
The pieces left to sift.
Belongings scattered in the storm,
No hope to be found,
Wounded warrior, dripping blood,
Writhing on the ground.
But God spoke up amidst the din.
He said that “You are mine.
Cease surviving on your own.
Stop your endless whine.”
As if a strong electric field
Did ignite a spark,
Hope was birthed within his soul
That did dispel the dark.
He now saw through eyes made new
Security’s in Christ.
Where ripped apart by Satan‘s plan,
His heart’s strands now spliced.
Risen from an open tomb,
The man can now attest
Where once he stumbled in the world,
His name now is Blessed.
This is based on a true story.
