Between the Dark and Light

Poetry By: Tesseth

Just thinking...sometimes people are pulled in one direction (Satan, evil, away from God,...)because they are at their weakest (sad, lonely,...). (He knows what they fear, what might work to entice them.) But, then they have a moment of clarity, they realize that they are the one's choosing their own path ---free will. They wake from the 'nightmare' and realize they choose their own destiny (God, goodness, love,...). Make sense? Nah, not to me either...but here it is anyway.

He comes to you in dreams
Floating and engulfing
He whispers and he schemes
"You are simply nothing"

He takes you by the throat
Leads you towards dark despair
He grabs your last known hope
He tells you "no one cares"

He wants you for his own
Wants nothing less than that
For all of God's seeds sown
He tells you, "you can't go back"

He'll tell you he's 'the one"
The only one you'll need
He tells you, "God is gone"
Tells you, "but I won't leave"

His mouth moves, so he lies
He tells you "just follow"
His words they hypnotize
Mind & soul he'll swallow

He beckons to you child
But you trip to your knees
He stands far off, he smiles
Enjoys to see you bleed

You're sick inside, confused
Caught between dark and light
The path forks-- here you choose
Ask God to give you sight

HE will not forsake you
Never leave you alone
He waits, His love is true
You're never "on your own"

You may struggle, sink, swim
He waits, knowing your path
He can't make you love Him
But, His love always lasts

God will never leave you
He's with you when you fall
No matter what you do
He'll be there when you call.
