'The Serpent In The Grass' - Poem by Kelly Seale
The serpent lay hidden, coiled
ready to strike.
It's venom holding evil darkness that will hold no quarter-
His body, camouflaged and seemingly invisible to the innocent.
You fear things that evoke new emotions
he is ready to strike!
Your heart bleeds freedom, your soul cries in agony.
The serpent in the grass has no qualms in his intent-
to possess your soul, in all it's goodness.
He will come with extreme prejudice-
he will sink his fangs deep into your flesh
as no knife ever has-
Erasing all you ever believe in, erasing all Hope.
Only one chance for your escape-
Find safety in your words.
Believe that you have your protection within your heart.
And only then, will you be able to see the serpent
in the grass-
Before he strikes.
