Something evil this way comes
Sure as the rising of the Son

A single heart left to bleed
A lost soul with a dying need

When love proves it doesn’t care
In creeps darkness and despair

Angry voices from deep with-in
Scream I’m a fool once again

I now make my soul like a cave
It’s the darkness that I now crave

Around my heart I shall build a moat
With blood sacrifices unto the goat

Deep in darkness as a soul can be
Father of darkness come feed on me

She destroyed the love in my soul
I do pray that hate fills up the hole

Troubled souls with hallow voices
In this life we all make choices

My choices have left me degraded
I now hate the person I created

Into darkness away from the Son
Something evil this way comes

Yea, I posted this for Deborah's contest.
Believe it or not this is who i used to
be. Poetry is a truly amazing tool when
it comes to change, it transformed this
into the man I am. All I can say about
that, "Praise be the Power of God".

Hello darling Michael. I know Ive been away, but have some time on my hands and wanted to read some of your poetry. Dont ever forget Michael, that without a pass and the experiences it holds, you would not be who you are today with the experience to help others; even your poems teach us. I'm pleased that you filled in that moat around your heart. Hugssss

Very provocative, Michael. I hate to think of anyone "building a moat" around their heart. As always, your faith shines in this poem! Love, Carolyn

Redeem, we should all proclaim it, redeem by the blood of the Lamb, your poems are so great a testimony, and they shine guiltless as a soul touched by God. Bravo

Truly a Blessing indeed that you are a different person today because of God Almighty...He is delivering lives all the time and setting em free...Thank God for everything he has done for you, it is sad to have experienced so much darkness in your life but when you have been led to the light only are you able to testify about the wonderful works of the lord. Awesome write, we all go through some darkness in our lives and the only way out is through the Master.. YF4L, Always Tyesha

Ooh Michael, got serious chills at the end of this. Dark is the word and an excellent entry for the contest. Sad that you know of this all too well, but thank God indeed for your glorious transformation. Good luck in the contest! Doesn't matter though cause you're a big winner already where it counts the most. YF4L Love, Shar
