Cowards of Darkness ( a poem of reconciliation)

We shall overcome...
We shall overcome...
As if only one voice in the wilderness...to this all will respond...
As if only one voice in the wilderness...to this all will respond...
Evil to raise its ugly head...
Evil to raise its ugly head...
The force of a mighty God shall deal with the unrighteous ones...
The force of a mighty God shall deal with the unrighteous ones...
The angels of the Lord shall rebuke the unjust ones...
The angels of the Lord shall rebuke the unjust ones...
The people of the almighty God shall be defended and saved...the evil shall fall asunder...
The people of the almighty God shall be defended and saved...the evil shall fall asunder...
This, the human spirit shall overcome the evilness, those who would act in falsehoods, and we shall unite in strength and purpose to destroy all evil...
This, the human spirit shall overcome the evilness, those who would act in falsehoods, and we shall unite in strength and purpose to destroy all evil...


They shall, indeed, reap that, the dark evilness, this they may sew,

The cowards, those who hide in shadows, fearing a just retribution.

While the good, the purest in heart, all do so struggle to understand,

Those who would destroy, by their hatred, in depth, its only contribution.


The lame of mind, the vile and the most impure, unworthy of all souls,

Prompted by their terrible lust for power, as fear, to each of them, cajoles.

Without any gain, as they, in dealing death, such a stressful life of pain,

Bring annihilation so justly to themselves, as in their attempts, to explain.


A usurping of religious beliefs, as misled, its warped methods, so slanting,

Dare to serve a higher power, when in fact, they themselves, do devour.

Their unfortunate decisions so made, by loud protests and their ranting.

To meltdown, fall apart, in the end, while each to await their midnight hour.


People of the world unite in greatest strength, God ordained, in its length,

Wipe clean the earth's face, this sore on humanity, its horrible disgrace.

Deal them a like hurt, as with their fists of fire, the wicked ones, to conspire.

Expose their fear of all truth and goodness, love and brotherhood, to replace.


Cowards of darkness, in their sanctuary, veils where they hide, shake in fear,

The uniting of all good, of the right, bring them our own fight, to draw near.

Reveal their foolish causes, unmask evil spirits, as the falseness disappears.

All powerful, the mighty spirit of our God, to bring our smiles, end our tears.

Very nice. I must admit and don't tell anyone but I was afraid to read this based on the title. I thought it was going to be about me and my phobia of the dark.

Seriously though this is remarkably loving while at the same time filled with the vinegar we need to defeat a common enemy.

God's part was done and now we must rise to the occasion and stand up for ourselves, for it is what was taught.

When the brave stand, cowards hide in the darkness. That is the way it has always been. whonu

Very powerful. Their beliefs are an abomination of all that's holy and they are so misled, as you say. Have you ever noticed it's never the ones who brainwash them that take up the fight themselves? I wonder why?!

Well done!

The title intrigued me, then again it was apt for the subject matter. Really enjoyed it.
