Sell My Soul?

Sell My Soul?

A Poem by Searching 4 Serenity
"

Something I threw together on a whim. Opening for "Pride And Greed"

"
Sell my soul? For a lot of dough?
How 'bout NO!
You can keep that contract, cause that's not my goal.
I'd rather be with family than be lost to money and gold.
Take that contract, burn it!!!
Bury the ashes in a six foot deep hole.
You may think, "Man, that's not cool."
Don't care. Request your foully offer to some other fool.
I'm not selling out to be another demons tool.
There's no glory in money and fame.
Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.
I won't conform to desires and lust.
Of course I, too, sometimes fall short
But I have to keep moving; I must!
Otherwise, I fall without any support.

many people would simpl not do what the person in your poem did, they would sell their soul in an instant for money, a very well written poem, i loved it very much!

The world would be so much better if people just did the right thing. The idea of selling your soul to the devil wouldn't even be on the table.

satan wanted to buy my soul...but unfortunately for him, the bank wouldn't give him a loan...
