Don’t Know (demons)

I don’t know 
Why you would give me
such experiences
Surely you could have found
Someone of more uniqueness

An orphan from birth
One of the least of the least
Assuredly you could have
Chosen someone less
Beaten to their knees

Demons are real
Come only your safety to steal
Roaming from another realm
Come to destroy any peace

The first was only a black blob
I suppose from all the darkness
Through the eons he had trod
Speaking Jesus’ name 
Was the only way 
To end the purpose 
for which he came
To bring me only pain

The second attempted to
Look like our God
On a throne he sat
Extended a hand
On this one I slipped,
Trusted
He touched my lips
Next morning, I was sick

The third, well
Looking like a child
Fearful when it smiled
Trying to beguile
Teeth, pointed, razor sharp
After one look
Asked about my written book 
In appearance only stark
Shade of black and grey
Only with Jesus’s name
Did it disappear
No longer to terrify 
In my ear

Perhaps the most fearful
In appearance of all
A grown man, strong and tall
No color to brighten his blackened visage
I said ‘In the name of 
Jesus of Nazareth, begone
Arguing replied, ‘Doesn’t work like that’
Screaming I answered
Oh yes it does,
Repeated Jesus’ name
As before all the others
He left 
Running from the light
Of our universe’s Master
To hide from His glory,
His power’s might
Our Prince of Peace
Lover of our souls!
Eternity’s Most Beautiful &
Wonderous Sight!
