The great tempter tries, subtly, watching us, lurking to lure. Preparing, waiting to dazzle us, in times we are unsure. His flames dance so beautifully, as we watch we are in awe. Warm and seducing, calling our names, They seem to have no flaw. Rising now, the fire you see will try to take you in, Inviting you to his den of iniquity, to live once more in sin. Closer now we feel the heat, as flames begin to rise. They take the form of hands and then they pull you by surprise. Do not give in to the deadly one, grab on to the lifelines you know. This fire will engulf you so fast, and cease your chance to grow. It’s there and waits quite patiently, being on your guard’s a must! His masques are quite deceiving, you know, he’s not the one to trust!
