Darkness - Poem by Temple Jones

Have you ever turned the lights out to see if you make your way
Have you ever thought that it was impossible to get out of the dark
Have you put your arms out to feel your way to the light switch or even the door

You stumped your toe
You bumped into furniture
You hit your knee
You trip and fall to the ground
You’ll blink your eyes when you think you are about to hit something

Have you though that in life we do the same thing
When we sin we are in darkness
We don’t know any better
We are ignorant about God and what HE wants for us

Sin is a disease that we must cure. It’s eating at our flesh when we commit wrong against another person and ourselves.
Sin is something that we don’t want to go to hell for.
Sin is darkness
Sin is wrong
Sin is the devil
Sin is something that you try not to do
Sin is something that we think about
Sin is something that we do on a daily basis

Sin comes in many shapes and forms
From fornication, lying to Adultery
Sin is not pleasing to God

When you finally stumbled upon the door or the light switch
You will flip the switch or open the door
There’s light at the end of the darkness
Everything that is done in darkness always comes to the light

You decide on what you want, Darkness or Light?
