The Evil (poem)

Updated on September 23, 2012

An evil cast its cloud upon a town

The people sighed perhaps it will not stay

But it got darker as they talked away

Confused by their own words the people drown


They searched for help in mirrors of their face

For surely someone else will find their sun

They hid their tears in dreams that they had spun

As shadows made it hard for truth to trace


But there a light a person came along

A common neighbor weary of this blight

To fight this night delight he might invite

If one could stand together they’d be strong


They watched as evil brushed this soul aside

The air resounded shouts if I was you

But as soul vanished all their darkness grew

Although this loss at least this person tried

      Evil is around us all the time in different mode! It is recognizing those that cast the spell to win the day! One of your best, voted up.

      Evil traps any soul that is willing to be trapped by evil. We can only fight the evilness that confronts and steals our soul by fighting back to keep it away from us. Have all the powerful armours gathered together and these are: faith, hope, love and courage which will free our souls from an evil's attempting capture and if captured.

      Very wisely written, Mhatter! Interesting and awesome too!

      A thwarted attempt to stand up against evil. The outcome wasn't as important as the stand. Others may follow. Good write my friend:-))

      Good work! Well described. Evil does divide and conquer the good. This was very well written.

      Even though many recognize what is happening, only a few will be brave enough to face it and speak out. Tis a war against complacency. Can it be won or lost? The answer has yet to be answered, but, yes, there will be casualties. Great job!

      Mh, excellent one for this evening. When "Evil" comes, its main purpose is to divide and it whispers those false imaginations into the ears of those unsuspecting. "Evil" has practiced this deception for thousands of years, and its speciality is deception. Voted Way Up Loved the video. God bless you dear one. In His Love, Faith Reaper
