Evil - Poem by chuck Hurley

It is the evil one who wants to plant the seed within the family of man
Hoping to destroy, separate and fill it with anger, if it can.
The opportunities exist in jealousy, selfishness and anger
To be nourished by fear and bitterness and fed by a stranger.

Evil grows in stubborness and one upmanship in the mind
To extend itself by not sharing, caring nor be fair and kind.
It has more destructive power than all the military might
With an ugliness that hides power, deceit and lofty heights.

It lies only in darkness in order to hide
To sanction its existence it takes both sides.
Its singular effort is to cloak the light of the soul
To separate one from anohter in a family that should be whole.

More often than not it will succeed
This perpetrator with the evil seed.
Without the family we can not exist alone
God would severely punish and we would understand the word Atone.

Just as religion should be sacred and true
Gods family also consists of the many and also the few.
So in the family of man one should take eternal care
Your God wants the family to stay together and with others be fair.
