The Beast

The beast is hungry,
The beast is free,
The beast is hunting,
You or me,

The beast is anger,
The beast is hate,
Injects your heart,
Damage your faith,

The beast is black,
The beast is white,
An encounter with the beast,
Not a pretty sight,

The beast attacks the weak,
It attacks your soul,
No longer warm,
Your heart grows cold,

God is the answer,
God is the cure,
God in your soul,
The beast no more....

    Wonderful poem. It is true that only those that have God in their life can be free completely from the beast and its marks(endtimemark). Wonderful! your works are perfect and encouraging to the lost souls. Thanks for this message. Gud evening to you.

    Life is a rapacious beast that wonders not what you believe in,and is only curious as to how you are going to repay It for what you have so eagerly received - Deity is Just - thanks for addressing God Palmer -with respect and Godspeed to you - J.A.B.

    An amazing write. I am glad you have identified as anger and hate. There is one more beast and perhaps the ugliest and that is 'lust'. Thanks for commenting on my poem The Town of Sintra. I am glad my poem has inspired you to add Sintra as one of the places to visit. Beleive me you will not regret it. I live very near Sintra. One of the palaces I have described is visible from the street on which I live. Let me know when you come and I'll host you a Dinner in one of the Sintra Restaurants.

    Thank you for your kind words on my poems, but without the Lords wisdom and the Holy Spirit I could never accomplish anything, your poem here is great and reminds everyone that the beast is alive and active, God grant you the wisdom to do His work through the soup, Godbless bob

    Evil is always an unwelcomed beast in this world. You have written about everyone's adversary very well here.

    It's a very striking poem Richard. Your analysis is so true. The beast or the evil always dwell in each one of us but when our faith in God is strong, the evil or the beastly instincts do not get a chance to dominate and the moment we are weak in our faith it began to influence us badly. Beautiful write. Love and best wishes..Ravindra
