The Devil She Was - Poem by Little Star

I thought she was an angel
Speaking words that sound so kind
Forgiveness in her lips seems easy
But her heart as dark as the night

She said she prayed for her enemies
But a friend she betrayed and let die
She stabbed her at the back
Her teeth grinning with pride

The devil she was in angel's clothing
Pretending to be humble but never was
Pretending to be forgiving but hate grinds inside
Beware of this so called angel in disguise

She vowed but unveiled her white linen
She broke her vows even to the Most High
Now on earth she walks with great pretense
Her lips speak no truth but evil lies

The devil she was indeed
Now standing as false witness
Where could her conscience lie
Her true self she can never hide
