Evil Has Many Faces

Why do you come now?
Why do you besiege me 
with your fowl unholy presents?
You are the Prince of Darkness,
the keeper of tormented souls,
you are Satan himself are you not?

Oh call me what you wish!
History has seen fit to adorn me 
with many provocative names
and I detest each one of them.
For they perpetuate the myth
that every bit of the world's evil
springs directly from my loins. 

Why do you come now?
Why do you torment me?.
I have been a great man of God.
I spread his word with relentless zeal
wielding the sword of righteousness
toward all I deemed evil and wicked.

Why I have come to take you home.
You have been a fantastic disciple. 
Few have served our cause better. 
You have made the worst sins
tolerable to the great masses. 
Cloaking evil under Godly robes 
was a masterful work of genius.  

No!  No!  This cannot be?
God has spoken through me.
I have been his earthly conduit. 
I am one of God's chosen people.
I devoutly followed his teachings
and actively preached his word. 

You perverted God's so called revealed word
into a twisted rendition of your own creation.
You stoked the fears of the ignorant into a inferno
and reaped all you could from the true believers.
You have spawned a most delicious type of hatred.
One that will continue to bear fruit for years to come.
Evil has many faces, but none more hideously vile 
than those who hide behind the curtain of religion.

    Sometimes, the people whom we think are the most trustworthy, end up being the ones who would do us the most harm.... These words are so powerful and thought-provoking. An excellent write, Kim!
