Poetry: Confessions of a Sin

24th Dec 2013

 

Behold my magnificence as I revel in my victories as you have come to know,

How forts of empires tall and strong, crumbled helplessly under my blow.

Grasp your hearts ye faint! for this be no simple rhyme,

I brought doom upon the greatest of saints,

“My life! My life!” was the cry of the last victim of mine.

I am everywhere to be seen yet my attacks come from the unseen,

Undefeated still I remain in my battles with the souls of man,

Slaves of their lust, slaves of their desires, slaves of their greed.

Many a family I tore apart, and there still be clouds over war torn lands,

My web is cast far and wide, none but angels live secure,

Upon the head of the devil I placed my crown, resting my use for his bloodied hand.

I am the commander of corruption, the vanquisher of virtue,

The master of malice, the ruin of rectitude,

I am sin, and be warned, for I have come to finish you…
