Poetry Sunday ~ Society's Demon

Society's Demon
All rights reserved: copyright © Joni Zipp

Darkness creeps across the earth,
giving rise to lustful birth.
Inner demons taking self worth.
I cringe as the demons win.

Rituals, blasphemy of every kind,
idols of worship to steal the mind;
searching for solace they hope they find;
demon’s corrupting my kin.

Gracing the plains, the wind, the rain;
the demon erupts no one left sane.
Often grappling with inflicted pain.
Legions of demons veiled in sin.

Run my brothers, my sisters, my friend,
heal thyself; try hard to mend.
To you my blessings I will send.
Allow lucent Light freely in!
