Our Worst Enemy - Poem by Jacque Hardison

Our worst enemy is sly like a serpent.
He is more subtle than any other animal on this earth.
Being around him makes me nervous.
He has been in my presence ever since my birth.
Our worst enemy is very cunning.
At the same time he is very deceitful.
The illusions of pleasure and satisfaction appear to be stunning.
Only to discover that these illusions are poisonous and hurtful.
Our worst enemy can be at first a close friend.
Telling him all the secrets and allow him into our personal lives.
Unfortunately all of his kindness and love was only pretend.
Now he has placed upon me infectious hives.
Our worst enemy is not there to be our buddy.
The enemy is only plotting evil that can destroy us.
His plan is to have my body slaughtered, leaving the room bloody.
Then pretend as if nothing happened, as if there is nothing to discuss.
Our worst enemy is too much to defeat on our own.
We need help to defeat the one who can take away our lives.
I ask in prayer for God to hear my groan.
To fight off the enemy, waiting for the day He arrives.
Our God will send His Son Jesus to fight our worst enemy.
To crush the head of the one who wants me to die.
Jesus shine your light in the darkness so we can see.
Take my place and tell our worst enemy to be gone and goodbye.
