Earthly Battle

I have a picture of a barren land,
a moldy tree devoid of fruit and leaves.
Above the moon amid clouds rise gloomily
as no rays reaches the muddy land.
Look behind the tree, you'll see me there.
An evil stench carried on the night breeze,
sounds of horror coming from the dead
as clouds hide even the small consolation
of the rising full moon, yellow and bane.
Virulence rules, malevolence masters.
The breeze turns into a whipping wind
moans of ghouls and demons uncouth,
peace and common sense buried in the mud.
A cat named Satan walks up to a tree,
Scaly, sallow skin, corrugated and cold
evil eyes, oozing blood, look balefully at me.

Yet I am strong, I never give in.
I fought the inner demon and I won.	
Tribulations come our way,
Temptations come, temptations go
for God will always care for me.

Deep and a little nerves write, and yes temptation comes and goes , but strength and faith holds us to our devotion to God.

Would be a bad place to be, indeed.

Creative work to describe what goes on inside our hearts and minds sometimes. I enjoyed reading your descriptive and emotive work. Your visit to my page was encouraging. Sara

Yes yayy God does care and kudos for this sublime poem that began darkly with demons and monsters that haunt the path but ends upon light. ^^^^^^^^^^^^>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<~~~~~~~ Plz also read and comment on my newest poem too.

Let’s hope the cat does not morph into Baphomet ~ the lower realms are not to the faint hearted. Enjoyed your poem, Victor :)

An engrossing poem, evoking our constant earthly struggles to become our better selves. With God, we succeed. I enjoyed this brilliant verse. Blessings, Evelyn

Earthly battles roil humanity. A poem brilliantly descriptive, Victor. I like the positive ending.

Victor, that's a gorgeous poem you wrote. As a corollary, your chosen topic is rich with inspiring possibilities. There are irrational parts of us in every one. You overcame your personal demons.

Beautifully written. All of us have such inner demons. From the first parents onwards, there have been traps laid by Satan.... and those who succumb to temptations shall perish. You fought the inner demons and came out victotious, you "Victor'
