The Devil Maybe

The Devil Maybe

A Chapter by J. Viands

Where is function in this?

In a world of material gain and greed

I try not to forsake thee

But I know you see the monster you made in me

A fanatic extremist who you gave an ability to lead

 

So frown upon me

But this is what the challenge made me be

So very displeased

 

But this means nothing to thee

Cause and effect is the trigger to your gun

I have said more than once

I will take this or leave it

Your will be done

 

But it seems success is not on the agenda for me

I declare a million things you want from me

But a shadow is all I see

The devil maybe

 

But within my begging and faithfully believing     

Twenty years later the shadow is still there and I’m left cold and bare

Within this shadow the only devil I see is one growing in me 

So come or leave your will be done as you watch over me
