REDEMPTIO

REDEMPTIO

The devil plays his seduction
and with savage fury rips into my soul.
I wait for the Messenger
hovering
in shadows dark and cold;
my body begins to whither.
my heart is sick with fearful imaginations
and flaming arrows destroy
all hopes of redemption.

Last few words: 
Joe needs to write. Showing early signs of A..... Richard

Joe, this is powerful! I felt the emotion pulling me into it's grip. I am still in awe of your tenacity; the need to write, the urge to communicate with the rest of the world. Thank you for the reminder and insight; this could be me, this might be me, this will be me. Maybe...
Gee.

will to live must over power any evil
remember it
fear not of the ultimate
when it comes you will not
even know it
in a slash it will come
like a tornado it will go
you won't ever then know.

may peace be your ultimate reward...your words will be remembered.
