As I walk through the forest I see, yet fail to see, the familiar ragged road ahead. My life has been mislead through my choices since the beginning and I've only come aware of the blindness which covers my eyes; my heart; my soul. My mind is soft and my body weak, for I've knowingly left my armor behind. My descent into hell begins on a sunny day, with my walk easy and swift, my load light. I travel as if I'm without burden, whistling to myself as I go along.
As often as I've been through this maze, it appears to me
Before I'm aware of it, the landscape drifts into a solemn ***** shade of grey.
My hearts beating stronger now, and I'm taken to a familiar place which I like.
It's dangerously inviting, it knows me by sight and I'm welcomed and feel a uncomfortable peace here.
It grows darker and more mysterious with each minute that passes. My surroundings are covered on all sides, beneath and above me.
I find myself in a caver-ness underworld cloudy with smoke, filled with evil angels hiding their faces, their angry burdened timeless souls exposed to flames so hot they would burn the sun.
There are heavy, slimy vines and black, dying trees, jagged rocks and huge shadowed shape cliffs.
No one who's not welcome may entire; it's our club, no entry for do-good'ers.
At the same time the holy spirit says be prepared to turn and run. However I'm not listening because I'm only for me now.
I give in without to much trouble to their serenade, believing you have already waited longer then you said you would for me.
"The what about me" parts are stronger and without my resistance will overcome the innocent unprotected child within me.
My wicked child listens to the dark side and strays, he likes the words spoken to him. Their soft voices have sweet luring lips which complement and boost my ego for all the wrong reasons.
The bad, fun things are easier to follow, in fact I prefer their songs, they make me feel good about myself. They stroke my ***** and whisper in my ear, they tell me I'm beautiful.
They remember what I like and they use my willingness to surround me within the necessary longings I crave. I drink from it's nippeled soul, as they caress my head and say what others forget to say.
The dark side kept me in isolation through the ignorant belief that there are only a few sinners like me.
The seductive voice says; tell no one for they will surely shun you for being so weak. They tell me that when the so called good people offer help; receive them with steely eyes and a closed mouth; knowing that they're trying to keep you from what truly loves you, your deadly paralyzing serpent. The dark soft voice hisses it's warning of treachery; their trying to change you, trying to keep you from your needs and wants.
For they have taken for their own fill, but the dark one before me always promises me more, just for me. The "good" takers have lost their ability to fulfill my wants and desires.
Without the strength of the shepherd I'm lowered away into the depths of the bottomless pit and become easy prey for the skillful butcher, who's intent is to cut me up in small pieces, leaving me just enough each time to crawl away, so I can return for the next shearing. And I gladly step into the lifeless den which is shadowed in the dead bones of the selfish, slaughtered just moments before me.
in fact I present myself as one most willing to
