Trap By Devil - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Trap of devil is well laid,
weak mind often fails,
we in our human form
keep this fighting spirit on
with a hope, faith and trust that
Someone Mighty is there to help us.

But taste of blood is so strong
it seldom allows us to give it on
we strive hard as ever yet
Respite to survive against devil
sometimes appears as doping bet
but who can guarantee that we will win.

Like fishermen’s net, it catches the best
And like fish we fall by enjoying little joy
To the unknown land where trade is faired
We jump up and down for innocence to rebound
But lust finally succeeds and we eventually get defeat
The devils are happy for the counts that are crazy

They fancied their chance and now they all dance
Masters are gone and preachers are on.

    Trap of the devil is everywhere to swallow the innocence of mind. A very symbolic poem with various deep imagery. Top marks. (Report) Reply

    We can easily fall into traps cleverly laid by demoniac forces! Unless we get protection from the great Power above, even the mighty can fall. Even if we escape the trap somehow for the time being, we have to be extra vigilant! Enjoyed this poem alerting man not to fall into the dangerous snares of the devil..... the most tempting one being lust! (Report) Reply

    It is our faith and trust in 'Someone Mighty' that protects us from being gobbled up by the devil's crafty designs you have nicely portrayed: we strive hard as ever yet / but who can guarantee that we will win /...But lust finally succeeds and we eventually get defeat. (Report) Reply
