Lullaby - Poem by Elisha Corlew

I am Doubt
I look innocent, white and pure,
But inside, I am the darkest and deadliest lie
Hiding underneath her skin, spitting lies into her mind
Making her unsure about her next words
Her older brother speaks to her in impressive words about a man
I see her fidgeting, biting her lips and twisting her hair
But then she slowly gives in to my deceit
My words lullabying her into rejecting His words
But she starts to grasp hold of this idea that someone died for her
I notice a greater Force, pulling me from the back of her head
He’s kneeling on the bedroom floor with her, their eyes shut
Is it too late? Has she already given in?
And in the blink of an eye, I’m thrown to the ground, looking up at her
I was her doubt
Hiding underneath her skin
Spitting lies into her mind
But she rejected me, trusting her brother
Trusting this Jesus
