The Battle: A Poem
An unearthly silence cascades through the room
Your heart has stopped beating; you’re consigned to your doom
The quiet is poisonous, the hatred profound
The emotions inside you screaming, but you make no sound
The shadows surround you, and you cannot breathe
You want to get out, but cannot leave
Your mind has taken over, there is no escape
You feel that your heart is beginning to break
Ghosts of your nightmares and horrors unleashed
Your suit of armor is no match for me
I slink through your thoughts, I will surely prevail
And create terrors for you that you always will feel
Your fears come alive, and your life is a mess
I will give you no peace, no comfort, no rest
Demons come out from the darkness of night
I’ll keep you away from all hope and all light
You want to get free, but the shackles are strong
You want me to go, but you can’t fight me long
I’ll stick by your side, I will keep you depressed
I’ll make you so frightened, you’re petrified at best
There is no way out, I have you at last
You have no future, no present, no past
My cluthes are iron, your struggles are weak
You won’t break free, and you cannot stop me
I’ll fill your dreams with horrors of night
I’ll consume your mind, you’ll be full of spite
You’ll cry for help, but no one will hear
You do not matter, no one holds you dear
I’ll come out on top, you’re stuck here forever
There is nothing to do, my grip will never waver
You are pitiful, so weak and alone
You have no place to call your own
You see, now I have you, you know you are lost
You have consented to your doom, you know who is boss
Don’t ever look back, or look up for help
You will not find it, and love won’t be held
What’s that, you are saying, there’s someone who cares?
Your Savior, your friend, who will always be there
You’re not afraid because he’s on your side?
What happened to me and the fear I supplied?
You’re turning away, you think I’m unworthy
You think that this God will save you from hurting?
I have control, and you cannot break free
But why am I feeling so weak?
You have on new armor, your sword in unsheathed
Your God by your side, you know I can be beat
I am losing strength, and it is no use
Why does the Father care for you?
Why did He die on the cross for your sins?
Why does He want you to follow Him?
Why is he stronger by far than I?
Why am I losing, please tell me, why?
You have defeated me, I know when I’m beat
But be warned, I’ll be back, so be ready for me
He is now by you’re side, I’m not worth anything
Because of your Lord, and your Savior, and King
Be gone, Satan, for you are done with me
I will not stand for this insanity
Your intentions are evil, and your heart is corrupt
You are not worth it, you don’t understand love
With my God by my side, I will win the battle
So you best back off, for the chains I will rattle
With God I will break them, and He will fight for my soul
And He will win, and you will be gone
