The Devil’s Advocate

THE WHISPERING SOUND FROM THE RUSTLING WIND

IT’S THE KIND THAT STIRS THE SOUL WITHIN.

YOU WANT TO CRY BUT THE TEARS WON’T COME

WHAT YOU HAVE IS A LIFE UNDONE.

THE DAMAGE YOU HAVE NEEDS MUCH REPAIR

YET YOU HAVE NO VOICE – NO WAY TO SHARE.

TAKE UP THE PEN AND WRITE IF YOU DARE

TRY TO AVOID A WORLD OF DESPAIR.

YOUR HEAD IS EXPLODING WITH SCREAMING – THEN YELLS

YOU CAN NOT DO THIS – YOUR GONNA CATCH HELL!

THE DEVIL’S ADVOCATE HAS JUST ARRIVED

PRAYING ON THE WEAKNESS INSIDE.

YOU TAKE HIS SIDE FOR THE SAKE OF DEBATE

MAYBE NOT – HE’S A PROMOTER OF FAITH.

THEN OLD MAN FEAR REARS HIS UGLY HEAD

DRESSED AS A JESTER FROM A COURT HE HAD FLED.

HE LOOKS AROUND SHOWING NOTHING BUT DREAD

SOON OPENS HIS MOUTH AND CALMLY HE SAYS…

WE ARE THE DEMONS DRAGGING YOU DOWN

ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, AND STRESS ALL AROUND

TO US YOUR LIFE MAY ALWAYS BE BOUND

NEVER ARE YOU TO BE ABOVE GROUND.

NOW YOU MAY FIND YOUR LIGHT OF GLORY

JUST REMEMBER WE CAN KEEP IT DARK AND GORY.

AS FOR YOUR STORIES – YOUR SCRIBBLES I’VE READ

THEY DON’T REALLY MATTER YOUR ALREADY DEAD.
