I wrote this poem for someone going through a very hard time in their life when they thought they had no hope left for the future. They told me they read this poem over and over and it helped them make it through the ordeal they were going through. Hopefully, it will help someone else.



The beast has come barring it's teeth.

It tries to consume me, take over my soul.

It brings down my spirit, keeps me in the dark.

It knows my weakness, it hits the mark.

It binds me in chains and steals my control.

It lies and steals and tries to console.

The beast has come barring it's teeth.

It's dark and evil and takes me down,

to the pits of hell with flames all around.

I writhe in agony, there is no escape.

I feel the hopelessness the beast can make.

I cry and cry until there is no more.

The tears are dry, my eyes are sore.

"Oh God help me!" I pray.

Deliver me from this demon, I'll die this way.

I feel the cool wind on my neck, a relief.

I fall to my knees in disbelief.

I feel wings brush against my cheek.

He sent an angel.  I felt so weak.

He lifted me to the light to escape,

the evil one, the souls he takes.

The light is bright, the beast tries to run.

The beams hit him like lightening.  God knows what he's done.

God's glory burst forth, the beast cannot see.

The beast looks and looks but cannot find me.

The angel lifted me out of the dark.

He comforted me in my pain.

He healed and cleansed me,

like a warm summer rain.

The heavens rejoice and a song they sing.

I'm carried away on angels wings.

God whispers my name and I am free.
