When our spirit is in slumber
That’s when the enemy attacks
And lay us asunder
He fights not with savagery
But with things that glitter
Masquerading as gold
And with tokens of beauty
To seduce our souls….
Do not be deceived
By earthly riches
Do not be driven
By materialistic desires
Do not be blinded
By sheer ignorance
Do not be a slave
To bodily pleasures
For these are his weapons
The tools of his trade
That defiles our innocence
And rids us of divine wisdom
There’s a spiritual fray
Constantly being fought
In the hearts of men….
Beasts within us
The yin and the yang
Of right and wrong
Of good and evil
Of light and dark…..
Tearing at each other
The darkness destroys
Like fire upon grass
Leaving ashes in its wake
And death in its path………
The light uplifts and empowers
Like seeds upon earth
Leaving bliss in its wake
And life in its path
The beast that wins
Is the one we feed most………………….
