Angels VS. Demons Poem by louis rams

there is a battle raging within me
that i can't control.
of angels VS demons for my earthly soul.

i found that the demon can enter your mind
and at times control your thoughts
and try to get you to do things
you normally don't do..

if you are depressed
that's when he's at his best.
he fuels up the anger that
has built up inside
and gets you to believe all his lies.

he wants you to believe that
everything in life, is owed to you.
and tells you that
'this is what you have to do'.

take everything that you want in life
and no one will put up a fight.
for angels and humanity are weak as can be.
and he's here to set you free.

these are just a few of the lies
he will tell to you
to get you to do what he wants you to do.

then i have the angel with all its might
telling me that
'everything is going to be alright'

to believe and feel all that's in your heart
for that's how mankind got its start.
for the heart is the center of your soul
and is something the demon can't control.

so follow your heart like you do your deams
and don't let the demon get in between.

so in reality, i can say to you
the LORD gave you the power
to your heart be true.

    Thank you for your poem. I am knew to the site and was recommended through a friend to view your poems. They are heartfelt and beautiful and I have had to struggle with the same sort of battles that try and steer us away from the truth. It is refreshing to see that others do as well. Take care and keep writing. Thank you Lee-Anne (Report) Reply

    this is well written about the good and the bad within us, some people would say that hell is when you are feelin low and depressed and heaven is when you are feelin happy and in love.
    your poem shows the good and tha bad in all of us
