"Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it"~ Mark Twain


Echos down a stony hall
Deaf to time by weary calls
By the living......yet alone
What has past....would not atone

Chained within....and chained until
Without thought....or will
Blind to freedoms....blind to light
Deceiver of the spirit's right

Agonies caressed and blessed
Badge of trials........and distress
Tally every wrong....and grieve
Did you you deceived?

Was your soil fertile ground
Did you roar with righteous sound
Was your flock....without defense
Was your pasture....barbed and fenced

Did you menace and destroy
Did you trumpet hate's envoy
As you wail down stony halls
Haunting echos.....force...recall

'Did you reap as you deceived?'
'Was your pasture barbed or fenced?'

Right to the bottom of the heart with the first line. The heart is desparately deceitful, who can know it? Barbed or fenced? Thank God that Christ's open for us to enter. I await His sequal with hope.

Lade with unchartered gems, Anita. An open seam for me to mine.

That's one bad apple.
This is like reading a nightmare. Dark poetic imagery.
Really brings the vilest horror to life...

Anita, horrific events inspired by the evil one spreads
and encompaasses the innocent causing more evil. This
is a chilling mind blowing poem and graphic! Kudo's!

If this was meant to scare the morals back into the unjust it sure scared me. Absolutely spellbinding poem combined with a killer graphic...winner here for sure.

I also wish we could all be a little NICER to each

other...and did it my way!!

But without luck...I failed being the kind one!!

Happy easter to you sis!!

Yes, it is a wish that never really comes true. Some find pleasure only in hating and seeing pain in another is their game.
