moments from the journey 9




poem 9


A beautiful angel caught
the fancies of a dark demon.
The demon wooed her but
she refused his love with scorn.

The furious demon snatched her away
from her land of love,
innocence and happiness to
the land of guilt, lust and greed.

The fairy tried hard to hit
all the hands grabbing at her,
to prove the unworthiness of lust
her heart filled up with anguish.

Every day the demon would visit
and ask her if she was ready to give in.
Every time he was met with the same hatred,
and after every failed visit he returned more enraged.

One night the fairy had a dream,
God has come down to help her.
She told her in a voice full
of love and compassion that she is wrong.

She is not wrong in her chastity
or her refusal to surrender to darkness.
Her mistake is hitting back at a mighty foe.
When she is lonely, first she should be strong.

    • very true! I have read a fantastic story about a snake and a saint, the saint convinced a poisonous snake that biting is sin because it kills, so it stops biting, one day the saint rescues the snake, almost dead because of attacks by people, he tells the snake that “I have asked you not to bite but never asked you to not hiss/scare.”
