Devilish Days - Poem by Daniel Richards

In our world today, evil breeds
On so many levels
Young and old alike fall victim too
The tantalizing taste of dancing with the devil

He is in our hopes and in our dreams,
A peaceful heart no longer ours,
Dying slowly full of painful screams,
As the devil laughs
With one hand, our heart he grasps

We accept the pain as way of life
Making our days a turn of chance
So roll once more the lifeline dice
And it falls once more on the devils dance

We never learn or take head
From the steel of pain or from the tears we bleed
So we remain trapped, I for instance;
Within this darkened state

The skies above rumble and thunder,
Lighting flashes and lights the road on which we wander,
Searching but what for
To find the answer to what’s in store
For us all

Only to find our final call
