Shatter the Adversary

by Randy East   May 16, 2012

The adversary... smothers,
in an ever thickening shell.
Adding layer over layer
just to keep you in his spell.

The spell of his temptations,
every whisper that he makes,
wants to blanket you in sadness
for he wants to see you break.

He keeps the pressure coming,
wants to fold you in a shroud.
Knowing well that he must bury
every Noble that is found.

For to him you are a focus,
he's aware that you are strong.
Knowing angels sing about you
in a very special song.

They sing about the triumphs,
you accomplish when you're free.
About the power of your presence,
and your capabilities.

They sing about that moment,
when you finally brake his cage.
About the shattering of layers,
and the whiteness of your rage.

For they've always known that Satan
couldn't keep you in his hold.
As they watch with smiles from heaven,
as your wondrous wings unfold.

    This is fantastic! I love the rhythm; it could also pass as a song. It does seem that he has the best of us, when we're at our lowest, and we forget that it's only because we let him get the best of us.

    I like the whole poem and the rhymes too.

    but the last line was the one that truly did it for me
    -let your wings stretch forth -

    I found so much inspiration within those few words, aim towards the future, and keep going open up and achieve, that's what those words mean to me. I actually there is more but in general that's how I can say them.
