PREY

prey

 

He had her just where he wanted her

Naked and helpless

Her lips were quivering

He could smell her fear

It smelled like “prey”

He could smell himself

He smelled like “lust”

Stunk like sin!

But he didn’t care

He saw her lying on the floor

She was begging

Begging for freedom

Her words were quiet and weak

His punches and blows had weakened her

His kicks had paralyzed her

Her full lips were now bruised

Well, he didn’t need them!

He looked at her swollen eyes

She was crying but he felt no mercy

He had one mission

He had one goal

To devour and be satisfied

He was the predator

And she was the perfect prey

As he unbuckled his pants to fulfill his lust

He felt a blow from behind…HIS HEAD!!!

He froze!

He felt the heat spread from his head

Right down to his toes

Something warm trickled down his back

And, just before the pain enveloped his entire being

He blacked out!

THE WALL

the-wall

 

She gave a lot of excuses

So many reason why…

Reasons why she couldn’t try

She would sometimes cry

Make a scene

And go back to her life of sin

Cheating herself

And nobody else

She thought she was smart

And she would tell them this and that

She told them about the wall

The wall that was responsible for her fall

She would exaggerate about its height

“Oh! What a sight!” she would cry

“It’s so tall!”

But she was only fooling herself

There was really no wall

Her fears and imagination had teamed up

They created a wall

They built it

She supported it

And to her, it existed

What a prey…on her they feasted!

She was her own worst enemy

Building nonexistent walls all around her

Walls that would deter her…

…Walls that were stopping her from being who she should have been

A figment of her imagination

What an evil creation!

A wall seen

Seen only by her!

 

What a waste of talent!

What a waste of a beautiful destiny!

Why!!!

Tear down the walls, pretty one!

Recreate a new path!

Forge on!

Don’t hold back your greatness!

Be the you you were created to be!

The you you were called to be!

Not the you decorated with fear!

You are great!

Created perfectly by God!

Be the you He created you to be!

Not the you the world wants you to be!

Don’t Let

Don’t Let

 

Even when it all seems established and fruitful

Don’t let pride creep in

Even if you are swimming in a pool of emeralds and pearls

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you are sliding through life with all your trophies

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you’ve defeated giants and claimed territories

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Even when your table is filled with food

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when your cellar is well-stocked with the finest of wines

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you visit kings and queens

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you sit down to dine with the wise

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Even when they try to flatter you with sweet words of admiration

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you hear the crowd chant your name

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when they salute and serve you

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when all your prayers seem to be answered

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Remain humble and thankful!

 

 

 

Even when the morning goes and the evening comes

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when all doors seem to be closed

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they laugh at your perseverance and faith

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they turn you down and walk away

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Even when the rain begins to pour

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when the ones closest to you betray you

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when the tears threaten to pour

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when your wallet looks old and empty

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Even when your stomach growls and your tongue is dry

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they make silly faces and laugh at your dreams

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when you’ve been rejected and scorned

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when tomorrow seems too far

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Always believe, never lose faith!
