Fall from Grace

By Margaret DraperPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Aspirations of glory and greatness

Brought about your downfall

Cast from the Heavens

Downward to the depths of Sheol

Enraged by your plight

Furious of your lowered state

Glowering at your surroundings

Haughty you remain

Insatiable in your lust for revenge

Justifying your hatred with pride

Knocked down but not defeated

Laboriously planning

Meticulously plotting

Nationwide domination

Of mankind's susceptibility

Passion and pervertedness

Quoting Scripture rhetorically

Reversing its meaning

Searching for souls

Traversing the earth

Undaunted in your quest

Venturing boldly among men

Watching endlessly for "blinded minds"1

Xennials living heedless to the danger

Yearning with insatiable hunger

Zealous to devour souls
