She prayed.

Updated on May 19, 2018

And the fire rages from within...

Born naked bloody and screaming

Her life spiraled downward from there

She lived on a diet of misery

She drank from a cup of despair


Her mother caved in to religion

Her father obsessed with cocaine

Her only connection to feeling

Was the depth of her God given pain


~She prayed~

"Our father who art in heaven"...


Her mother said Jesus and Satan

Were battling over her soul

Would the victory go to Jesus

Or would Satan emerge as of old


~She prayed~

"Thy kingdom come"...


Her soul bathed in self delusion

In a prison of self condemnation

She didn't believe for a moment

There was even a chance of salvation


~She prayed~

"Thy will be done"...


She was the prize in a war of old

In a battle that raged for her soul

Would she be saved by the Jesus gun

Or would Satan increase his fold


~She prayed~

"Now I lay me down to sleep

I prey the Lord my soul to keep

If I should die before I wake

I prey..."


They found her slumped over her bible

They said she had gone insane

They didn't know Jesus had failed her

And Satan prevailed once again

Amen...

      Thank you all for taking the time to comment.Faith is a delicate thing;Wonderful to those who have it;Terrible to those who don't.

      Still,the one thing we have for certain...and in common...is right now...and right now done properly is the key to everything else.

      Oh, meant to add that your profile hubber name caught my attention, and we have been huge fans of the band Cheap Trick for many years and seeing them in concert all over. The first time back in 1978 in St. Petersburg, Fl. Looks like you have listened to the same music we have since back in the day.

      Dramatic poem and great writing for sure. I do not like to give any glory to satan, not even capitalizing his name for he is nothing but a liar and has practiced his art of deception for thousands of years and loves to whisper false imaginations into one's ear. He knows he has already been defeated two thousand years ago on that cross, so he is on a rampage to take as many with him as he is able. I believe if she prayed, the girl in your poem, she is with Jesus now. There is a big difference between "religion" and a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus, no comparison at all. Blessings

      Up and more

      And so we prayed,

      Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done,

      As it is in heaven, but all remains the same.

      But for now, Satan, again, has won.

      Interesting, but the ending made me sad.
