Way of Evil (poem by me)

It soars like an enemy fighter
shooting down any good God did through me,
It feeds, nurtures, and empowers
mankind’s mortal enemy.

It is the stench of vomit on a beautiful girl,
The prescription is humiliation
It is the screech of tires before a crash,
My escape route is to praise Him,
It is the taste of curdled milk in a dark roast blend
God’s Word is my medication,
It is seeing an old friend on heroin,
Prayer, take me to a holy destination.

It’s a bullet wound to my cranium,
It is the reason that I lied
It’s a disease that strikes children
Read the coroner’s report:
The cause of death was pride.

“The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.” —Proverbs 8:13
