Devil Caught


Devil Caught

For every day I must live. 
Breathing air in this crazy fringe. 

Water I must have to drink. 
To keep liquids flowing through my streams.

Food I need to eat.
Protein must have for massive strengths.

Clothing for needed wear. 
Comes from Mother Earth the plants she spared.

Taught by others, I have learned right from wrong.
Depends on the teacher, on how this mind will be taught.

Sometimes this is not all true. 
The Monster will grab your pupil, then turn evil upon you. 

Outside world where the shelter life ends. 
All grown up, trapped in the devils grin. 

We can teach - then they can be taught. 
Lets pray that they will not be - devil caught.

(bad meaning x human didn't like it). The Universe all of creation must be in constant flux to grow. Every death is necessary for new life none wasted all rebuilt reborn reformed, the organism (man within the body of God/Universe/higher power) sees no right or wrong merely what must be for life to move forward and the end to be postponed.

Once there was...and still is..a concept of God that holds what HUMANS call good & evil both within the entity we name God. Mankind..some of it..could not understand why a loving God would let bad things happen
