They are almost invisible

Yet their damage is so vast,

They work in tandem to meet a target

So any structure will not last.

They are pesky little creatures

But they have an aim and vision;

To eat away and to deplete

To cause chaos and division.

When the termites of bitterness

They nibble on our soul,

They’ll chip away our peace and joy

With a definite stronghold.

When the plague of fear knocks

On the door of our heart;

We remember the promises of the Lord

That all evil shall depart.

When the termites of anger

Multiply they cause destruction,

As they eat away our insides

So we cannot clearly function.

Although they’re white it’s not a reflection

Of any purity they possess,

Since their nature is to ultimately destroy

They truly are a pest.

To exterminate is the only solution

Before more damage will be done;

To completely and totally annihilate

Until there is not one.

Similarly all anger and bitterness

And all of our transgressions,

Need eradication of every sort

To relieve all stress and tensions.

It’s through repentance we are cleansed

So all traces of our sin,

Will not cause any more destruction

As we’re protected from within.
