Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Pain’s Losing Power…

Pain cuts deep.
Past the surface.
Through bone and flesh.
What happens next…
—-
The lies I once believed,
The whispers in my ears.
The fear born deep within,
Accepting as truth, what I would hear.

Following the insidious leadings,
Into the realm of self destruction.
Smothered by a heavy darkness,
To which I’d helplessly succumb.

Now that power has faded.
Lies replaced with God’s truth.
Fear is buffered within me,
By a shield of faith I lift and use.

I can resist the temptation, when hurt,
Which once locked me in chains.
Tonight I did not drink or use,
Only God could make that change…

Aside

The Darkness Lives…

You are the nightmare among floral dreams

You lurk in fear’s shadows

The darkened spaces of earthly edges

And the blackness of haunting echoes

 

You come to kill, steal and destroy

Slithering among the hearts of men

Engulfing the world with temptation and torment

Seeking new souls to damn

 

Your demonic minions terrorize

Inflicting destruction at your bidding

Hiding their existence under the guise of strife

Creating a sense of despair, unremitting

 

You scratch and claw at unseeing eyes

Your blood is as acid burning holes in peace

You know you are defeated

Yet you still tear at flesh, desiring pains release

 

Your power is only that which we give you

The power of our fears and rage

You desperately attempt to fight a battle

You’re destined to lose in the coming days

 

You seek to take as many with you

As you can successfully deceive

You won’t stop in your attempts

And that’s why I watch for you soberly

 

Acknowledge he who hunts you as prey

Know thine enemy

But Do not feed him with your fear

God is stronger than he’ll ever be

The power of love and light

Conquers the powers of hell

God’s word is the sword of the spirit

Used to fight in spiritual warfare

We do not fight flesh and blood

But spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12)

Be vigilant to the end standing firm in hope

Faith is the shield, the devil’s arrows it quenches

Photographic Remains…

I threw his picture in the trash

He is no longer here

His essence and his spirit left

I made them disappear

 

I suppose I didn’t consider

The power of photographic remains

But when I came across them

I re-experienced the same pains

 

I will no longer be haunted

By his painful memories

I’ve taken back the power

I let him steal from me…
