Temptation Salvation

A. W. Nutter

Constant battles raging within
Masters fighting for my soul
Seeking forgiveness, chasing sin
A life spinning out of control

Creatures adorned with freewill
Christ or Satan, my only choice
Hearkening to the tempters trill
As I pray to hear my God’s voice

Forced to pay homage to a reprobate
The holy trinity refuses an audience
Satan, filling a young soul with hate
The heart grows cold with defiance

Pathways taken, lead to destruction
Time spent on earth, has been my hell
An unworthy soul seeking salvation
Purifying blood, to break Satan's spell

    You are a gifted poet Anthony, perhaps even a modern day prophet. It takes a lot to write from the heart as you do, words that contain the power to change lives.

    The things which men torture themselves with aye? No need for Satan we have our own torments and tormentors. Light & Love [and we can be our own saviors too ;)]

    Life, I find is like a scale of justice. In order to experience the good, there must be the bad also. Very profound writing, Anthony. Lainie

    Many of us feel this internal struggle that you describe so well in your poem, Anthony. If you recognize your sins and feel true contrition, I believe a loving God will welcome you home. Love, Carolyn
