All my life Satan has tried to still my tongue by attempting to kill me.

A Narrow Precipice
©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry 

Along a narrow precipice, I moved cautiously:
a child's trek down Grand Canyon's donkey trail.
I walked not alone: Satan slinked surreptitiously
between the rough wall and this body frail.
He struck with precision, ever so tenaciously.
His blow sent me headlong to hardened shale.
Death stills a future tongue, he grinned impetuously.

You will not win this round either, Satan,
for I belong to Christ and I have already won.

He didn't see God reach out and send me on my way;
the trek no less dangerous as I grew,
but my Father knows Satan will come another day.
The path was trickier as hard winds blew
while, again, Satan prepared to make a final play;
but God's steady hand readied, for He knew.
Diseases can still her tongue, Satan summed up my pay.

You will not win this round either, Satan,
for I belong to Christ and I have already won.

So many times he struck; sure it was successfully.
He was blind to God's stance at the cliff's edge.
I rose up repeatedly and would speak truthfully,
walking the talk where rivals lined the ledge
unaware that Father protected me faithfully.
Vile soldiers lobbed pharaoh's four-sided wedge.
More blows to her head 'til dead, they shouted willfully.

You will not win this round either, Satan,
for I belong to Christ and I have already won.

Nothing is working, Satan crossly calculated;
thus, he engaged medical, hearth and house:
Ruling agencies can kill, he deliberated,
and each lie made it appear I'm a louse.
Blind to God at my side, I was exonerated;
still they fight, firm that his fire not be doused.
Get her on the streets! Dumb, but they capitulated.

You will not win this round either, Satan,
for I belong to Christ and I have already won.

Blessed are those that stand for what they believe, and keep on the FAITH's road, for the crown of the winner will be theirs.

"A Narrow Precipice" sings with the Winner's voice, and leaves aroma of wisdom... A poetic bouquet truly delivered.

In admiration,

A wonderful testament to Christ, with an acknowledgement to how powerful Satan can be.
