Deal with the Devil

Deal with the Devil

A Poem by Paladin4life
"

This poem walks you down the road of dealing with the devil. I will let the poem speak for itself. This is truly the way many souls find themselves in hell.

"

The devil beelzebub has come

Thought to be ugly by some

Perhaps he's not that bad

He really seems kind of sad

Yet beautifully luminescent

Maybe even innocent

He has something to give

He claims I need to live

He appears so sincere

His eyes remove my fear

I reach out to take

Withought asking my stake

The trinket to ashes turns

My flesh cringes and burns 

All hope is surely broken

And I remember Eden's token

Surely this is how you fooled Eve

My burdened heart began to grieve

Angel of light's visage rapidly changed

Revealing a shadowed being with eyes so deranged

A coarse voice cackled with maddening glee

Thanks to your ignorance, your soul belongs to me

Ebony chains around me appear

As I shed many a tear

To God I cry save me please

As the devil began to tease

Cry a little louder maybe HE didn't hear

Then my heart sank in fear

The snare was laid for my very soul

Now I shall never be whole

The devil's trinket was a fool's joy

'Twas the hope of tomorrow a truly damning toy

Its bright colors oh so inviting

Much as a lure to a fish that is biting

No need to worry about serious matters today

Christ would always be there so today I should play

Oh those words now have damned my soul

Now as the demons drag me to the hole

I can smell the brimstone and hear the screams

I can feel the heat of the rising steam

Oh God I cry, I am sorry save me please

As the smoke stings my lungs causing me to weeze

I struggle to escape but to no avail

for now I am plummeting deeper and deeper into HELL.

I really enjoyed it, because it accurately depicts how Satan tries to deceive us into thinking we have a tomorrow, and we may not. People, especially young ones like you and me, often think we have more time than we do. Although it's a scary realization, it is also a profoundly important one that I thought you helped us all reach. We only have one life to live and we need to give our lives to Christ, because we do not have to go to Hell. Christ paid the ultimate price so we would never have to live in fear once we repent and dedicated our lives to Him and doing His will. "Sin, where are your shackles? Death, where is your sting? Hell...has been defeated. The grave could not hold The KING!"- Newsong

Your poem speaks volumns. Too many souls will dance with the devil until their time of salvation has passed them by.

Well done poet, well done!

I liked this one a lot. It was scary, but I think that's the feeling you were trying to get across. My only critisism would be that it should be "without" not "withought."

Another excellent poem! :)

That entity definitely isn't called the Master of Deceivers for nothing, and your poem depicts it both graphically and effectively. You say far from perfect, I say rather well done indeed.
