The Ladder - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Ones upwards climb in life: times seems aimlessly trying for you.
Shadow demons or unfriendly family to meet: you'll have in life to face.

From darkness lowest depth: you must ascend out of confusion.
Escape puppet's lines, go beyond: break free from womb of disgrace.

Darkness is your foe, unseen fact not known: the realm of uncertainties.
You're under evil grasp, be obligated to do good: you must find truth.

Birth of the lie confront it: death and sin formed from its false concept.
You're its witness, a victim of said: its resurrection and its reproof.

Confusion rules demons dynasty: you in walk while endure its stress.
You to be inspired, ready to fight wrong with right: end the doubt.

Lost souls demons delight, you, the avenger: have to bring others out.
Ascend beyond false perceptions of us: out of its forgetfulness pit.

Go beyond this earth state, our elder did go: pass its Satanic desire of kill.
Above its firmament mid-way high:
Inside the division of the deep cut.

Beyond eve and morn called by host Angel: Night and Day.
One step you upwards on the ladder: one layer of darkness lost.
