Devour Me - Poem by Rik Bertrand

My life has be short lived, but involved,
So many dilemmas I have come across and solved.
Pain and suffering has stricken my soul,
And it has finally begun to take its toll.

Surrounded by blood thirsty revengeful wolves,
That were hiding on the darkened roofs.
I am their prey on this wicked and sinful night,
And I have no more strength or will to fight.

I stand defenseless along the river of death,
I cover my face and breathe in my last breath.
I have feared this ending for ohh so long,
For I must pay for all that I have done wrong.

Take me now; I will feel no pain or sorrow,
I do not deserve to see rest of this day, or any tomorrows.
I am a young soul that has dampened the world's core,
And this is something that I must truly pay for.

Devour me, so that I may begin a new,
Do this for me, do this for you.
I am worthless to this world, as I am now.
Devour me, so that I may, to my Lord; Bow.

The Devilish Wolves looked curiously on,
As if they were confused with what should be done.
They were not sent to devour my sins,
They were protectors of life and guardians of men.

They huddled around me and surrounded my being,
They showed me their world, and what I should be seeing.
My mission in life is not clear or set true,
But I have been chosen to complete it, and this I must do.

I am a child of God and a to savior man,
I am this, and I am that, I am who I am.
You will see me through time, I will sacrifice all
I am the sacrificial lamb; I will not let you fall.


REB (MARCH 2012) because Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
