Life and Death


What is this horror
Its name is Death
It hunts and prowls
It kills and destroys
It takes what is not its to take
It wounds the soul
It destroys the love of life
And the link of love

But little does it know
Death has a peer
A greater power
A stronger force
And Its name is Life
And as death is a theif
Life is a blessing
Life gives
Death takes
And just as Death takes
The Devil prowls and sneaks
Searching for a foothold
A weak spot in the soul
But little does it know
The Devil has a peer
And as Life gives
The Lord protects
Closing up the footholds
And Sealing the weakness in the soul

    This is another philosophical writing. A very interesting one. It is a somewhat simplistic view but one worth recommending for consideration.
