Why am I vilified? Doesn't everyone defy?
I am the bringer of deceit.
The one the pious plan to defeat.
Can one truly hope to prevail,
don't they realize all will fail.
Yet, I must digress,
that simple point is a mess.
You all shall fail just as I.
You all blame me without a sympathetic eye.
You all steal, destroy, and maim.
Why can't you see tis all a game.
No matter what you do wrong you say was in the name of God.
If we are all his creatures then why such hate for me.
I was his favorite before you stole his compassion.
Many could ration the insults they receive.
But I receive so many daily this I don't fancy.
I may have a place for you to stay for being like me.
But you saying its my doing is not true you see.
You were given free will by He.
So any choice you make you make free.
Your voice is meek and mine robust.
You all lie you all lust.
So how can you blame me for all your faults.
I've done nothing since I lost my foolish fight.
Blinded with anger I lost all sight.
I missed the love God once had for me.
Fallen from grace I have so easily.
Power I do possess.
It can not be released unless.
You do wrong you make me strong
but I never made you do anything at all.
I'm tired of the unnecessary anger and resentment toward my name.
They say, "the devil, for shame."
We have all done evil one way or another.
Some to strangers, some to there own brother.
You make your path and decide your fate.
You'll either see me or see the pearly gate.
Remember that hate is a strong word so try to refrain.
Leave me out of it now or if I do see you, you may receive more pain.
End the misguided hate
and leave your future to fate.
You make your past present future not I.
So for now I bid you ado goodbye.
What do you think?
Is all the wrong we do the devils work?
Fallen from Grace
