HOPE VANISHES WITHOUT FAITH

All the riches and the uncontrolled lust
the alluring world can offer humans instantly,
will never affect the truest believer  
who dares not embody the devil waging war;
not to wear fine clothes and lustrous gold,
not to be admired or be vehemently worshipped,
not to stand where an impostor will cruble into dust;
Lucifer won't convince him or her to stray!

Hope vanishes without faith,
their dark road is even blacker than smoke
as they shout out what's unclean,immoral and unsacred;
even the fire can't melt the thick ice,
and the hammer isn't able to break
the shackles as they deliriously dance;
amid millions of innocent souls they profligate...
to pierce their flesh to make a lasting effect! 

People who declare themselves gods,
are anxious to be seen in the spot-lights...
displaying what they possess,telling what they crave!    
They prefer to be shackled by bondage,
live to extremes,and pay the dearest wage...
living to satisfy desire for a dangerous purpose,
to harm their bodies and bring calamity on themselves;
it's unimaginable the afflictions they brave!

Hope vanishes without faith,
you must protect it with your endurance;
your Creator has given you a choice:
live by his unchangable commandments,
or die without knowing His will;
ignorance stems from a lack of knowledge...
be the one who favors obedience,
to serve a God who asks nothing more than grace!
