the evil me


Who am I?



When will my end come?



Why are they running to get me?



When will they stop chasing me?



I was created by them but now am in control over them



I am the darkness that walks at night



And the evil that works in them



I rule everything around them



And they try to get me at all cost



Desperate once does desperate things to get me



Righteous once in lack of me become unrighteous to have me



Am their life and death



Hope and survival depends on me



Even in life and death they cant do without me



Am the root of all their evil



The fire that separate good friendship



I created the wolfs and the sheep



And I turn the heart of the fathers against mothers, sons against daughters



Am the good and bad of all man kind



Who am I?



Am something you can’t do without.

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
