FAITH KEEPS US FREE

From jokers to aces...shooting sharp arrows of anger at Gods shepherds and His sheep
With perditions plots and plans...with a million madness minds...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

Jokers...laughing loud lunatics with red hot invisible pokers
Stirring the embers and stoking the fires
Hellbent like hyenas...bringing gore to the game
Overdosed in overdrive...they just drive themselves insane
Falling fast into the pits they dug for those who believe...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

Jacks...coming on like thugs and gangsters
Trying hard to beat us down with strong tongues that twist with terror
Looking deep in dirty mirrors those mud monsters melt away
Jumpin off their lives of lies...from the ledge they stain the streets
Afterlife...they burn and freeze...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

Queens...yeah they quiver with their power
Sitting high up in their towers...they watch the world through wicked windows
Spinning webs of soul seduction...sprouting fangs and jet black wings
Singing songs of love and lust...set to snare the wondering sheep
They seek what they can't have as they drown in their disease...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

Kings...just like killers,they grab the good mans gold
They snatch his bits of silver...they try to take his soul
Now fury rushes through them like a jury that is hung
Their judgments turn to justice from the king of kings above
Tyrants thrones they fold...just like napkins crumpled up
Still worshipping war gods that erase their thoughts with ease...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

Aces... hit their targets just like supernatural snipers
But when their bullets fall and fail their lacking days are numbered
Running races just like rabbits...once the first they're now dead last
Now the victims of their vengeance rise from graves to spew their wrath
A million miles off their chosen path...countless sins and crimes now paid
And the lines that lead to death are too long on judgement day...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

Crooked cards of consequence...now their days and nights they end
As we walk the straight and narrow we lay down and rest in peace
Demons drop as end times come down
And the devil sighs and screams...
STILL OUR FAITH IT KEEPS US FREE

    Another striking write! Very dramatic, depicting the wrongs of society and how they try to affect us, but faith keeps one free. Thanks for sharing and thank you for all your comments on my poems. Perhaps you should also read "Arrows (part 2)". Check out the conclusion I came to. Might be of inspiration to you. Caroline.
