From Darkness.

A Poem By Shane // 2/26/2009

Part I:

Part I:
Dark is your heart.
Shadows of evil.
Consuming your mind, your soul.

Every moment, falling.
Dwelling in deepening darkness.
Death’s curse upon you.

Another day, another hour.
Never failing, never ending.
Once more watching you die.

Taken by evil.
Unaware of Satan’s hold.
The heart of sorrow.

Hell’s curse.
Bent upon you.
Stealing your soul.

Part II:
Lost soul.
Come back home.
Hear Heaven calling.

Overcome darkness.
Oh wandering child.
Dwell no more in torment.

Victorious rise from Hell.
Let Lucifer’s grasp be broken.
For grace conquers all.

Evil’s curse cannot withstand.
The light of love.
Come out and live again.

~All men were created equal, then some became Marines~

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief

Whoa! That was, um,

Whoa! That was, um, interesting......no, really it was great. Wonderful wording--you used those certain words that I love. You know words like, soul, shadows of evil, dwell, sorrow, heaven, grace, all those words and more. Like it a lot.......

It takes people a long time to learn the difference between talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and women. --Little Women

Thanks for commenting...

Thanks for commenting!

The poem was largely built around this line:

"Once more watching you die"

Which popped into my head as we were driving home one night. I was thinking about what I guess you could say is a difficult situation.
