The enemy of our soul

Masquerades as an angel of light;

To tempt us with all our desires

And to indulge in every delight.

We are created to think logically

To rationalise and to muse,

But our carnal nature and our lack of depth

Prefers to be amused.

We can justify, pretend or lie

To others all around,

But that low-level pain inside our heart

Is a chain that keeps us bound.

We can all conform to society

And to tolerate everything,

But our soul cries out for justice

And the much needed peace that truth brings.

Our task in life is simple

But we tend to complicate,

Since we value our intellectual pride

And many times the things God hates.

A revelation is required

One of deep humility,

As we humble ourselves before the Lord

So the truth we’ll find and see.

That God-shaped hole in our heart

Can never escape or leave,

Until we come to the deep realisation

That God’s love and forgiveness we need!
