Running From Ourselves

Racing through the night
Our hearts must take flight

As the beasts give chase
We flee from our fall from grace

Consumed by sin
We desperately ignore the evil within

The devil lurks near, preying on our fear
The apex of insanity becomes uncomfortably clear

We are young and we are mislead
We are apathetic and we are dead

    All mankind is dead without the Lord Jesus Christ. Good write.

    A great write, Christopher! Yes, we battle evil everyday within ourselves. That is why I thank God everyday for His grace. The battle cannot be won without His help. Thanks for your kind comment tonight. Blessings, Rhonda
