TRUTH OR TRICK

TRUTH/TRICK???
-------------------
Soft and Swelling
Sound to the ear
But is it a sound
Worthwhile to hear

A smoothe melody 
Soothing the mind
But does its lyrics
Taint or refine

A sweet lullaby
To put me asleep
Or seducing spell
To lure me deep

Into its waters
Burying treasure
Deep in its ocean
Of endless pleasure

Candy sweet
A sugary taste
A present fill
But eternal Waste

Sensational
But will it magnify
My God in heaven
Or satisfy

My dark desires
To kill my spirit
Or quench my thirst
If I grasp/adhere it

Appealing words
But do they align
With your holy word
Each page/line

I want to ensure
I have no regrets
No price to pay
Nor recurring debts

A healthy substance
Safe for injection?
Or bodily harm
In need of rejection?

If not of you
Then I won't listen
Likely it's Satan
Trying to glisten

Imitating
An angel of light
Twisting his words
To his own delight

Tell me Lord
Am I being deceived?
Or can these words
Be believed?

A chipper chirping
Sound of chicks
But is it Lord
The TRUTH or A TRICK
