The Battle Rages Within My Soul

Looking into the face of the devil, I see the depths of hell. I hear the cries of pain, I see the suffering and the fallen. I feel the fire burning all around. Yet, I see a bright, brilliant light. A man like no other, A vision of massive wings, In a white suit, who stands before me. A heart of true peace, Sanctuary, and the glory of all. In the middle of this chaos, I feel safe in the presence of greatness. My Dear, you truly do not belong here. Only those of true heart, Can see me in my human form. We are of the same blood, my sweet niece, You are here to witness, Those who have sinned and, Wronged against you. You were lost, Now you are found. A bright light descends into hell, As Athena takes me home.

Hello, my dear friend, it has been a long rough road and yes, I am walking, but I haven't been alone. He has guided me the whole time along with friends and medical angels. Thank you for your kind words.

I hope you didn't think I said the wrong thing. Sometimes the voices in my poems rub people the wrong way. I was trying to get the message across that justice will be served maybe not on earth but in the afterlife. I truly believe this. It made me think. Thank you.

Amen, keep your eyes on Jesus all else is a distraction, May God bless, comfort, guide and fill you with His peace, love and joy in abundance

Thank you. My doctors tell me I'm a walking miracle. I was a quadriplegic in hospital for 3 years now I'm walking. God definitely on my side.
