The Devil’s Lies (Poem)

devils-lies

The Devil been tellin me lies again
That I’m such a fool
I’m better off dead

He follows me around everywhere that I go
Every move that I make
Every seed that I sow

He’s the rule I can’t break
The crux to my fall
The pill on my tongue
The hate in my gall

Everyday is a heartache
And it all ends the same
Like I’m trapped in a Matrix
Lost in a game

I try to do what’s right
But I keep hearing all that noise
The Devil captivates my ear
Telling lies to fill the void

He says that I’m not worthy
My life is such a shame
I’ll never be much brighter
than a matchbox in the rain

But he’ll be brokenhearted
When I make him out a fool
As the light that shines inside my heart
Sheds the grace of truth
