Playing With Evil


Like a puppy playing with a snake
we are fascinated by evil
scary stories by campfires
haunted houses, chilling tales
of evil deeds, we laugh
at our fear yet continue
to dance around the dark
thinking we are in control
safe from its reach.

Is there a dark side
in each of us waiting
in dormancy? Does evil
whisper its name?

We know when we are
in the presence of evil
we know, yet even then
we do not turn away.

There comes a time
of decision
when we must choose, when
finally we understand
this is no game
to be played again and again.

I avoid places and people
in grave darkness
it’s in the Light I stand.
I have chosen the path of love
to go to the promised land.
