Letter To The Devil
Darkness I found myself lost in you,
With no mercy, my heart is what you
Pierced. You slicked in and destroyed
Me in the dark. Oh yes, you betrayed
Me. You welcomed me to kill with you than
You invited me to steal something better than
What I had. You are so dark and for all the
Things you did to me; I don't hate You the
Way you hate me. I just hate the fact that
I don't hate you at all. And in all of that
I hate that you lied to yourself by believing
That you had me pinned down. Oh and one
Thing, in the dark I met light and the one
Who is called darkness bowed before Him.
I found myself rejoicing and praising in Him!
With mercy, my heart is what light fixed.
Light shined in me and gave me faith.
Oh yes, He created me. Light welcomed
Me to have a good life with Him than
Light invited me to preach something than
To steal. He is so bright and for all the
Things He did to me; I love Him the
Way He love me. I just love the fact that
I love Him that's all. And in all of that
I love that He speak the truth even to the
Point of death. Light believes He can exalted me.
Oh and last thing; I'm forever in the light now.
