Poetic Exorcism

© 2005 Tyrone V. Banks


Impure thoughts I cast thee out

To reside on printed media where you can do no harm

With a flick of the hand the ink from my quill

will splash across the page to wash away all doubts.

I cast out the wickedness that has accumulated

And has now maketh it difficult to focus

On the true meaning of this Word craft more commonly referred to as Poetry.


I cast out the wickedness that has accumulated within my unstable mind

And pray that it does not return.

I will try to take those pleasant thoughts that revolved around my psyche – stimulated by a clever dose of caffeine

And hold them captive within my heart

So that when the wicked ones attack

I can defend myself.


As my temper loosens itself from the feeble grasp that I keep

I pray that I can hold on long enough to retract the things that are hurtful and instead say the things that are positive and thoughtful.

I will pray that the critics will see through the words and separate the man from the emotions that are evoked at random.

See through the demonic form of spite that may possess me and help me to see my way out.


I have heard the call of the father and now look to the Shepherd to carry me home.

Through a self imposed darkness of feigned ignorance I trod

In search of a path that I can see as clear as the pages of the Bible that I will consume

 For energy and pure thoughts.


Every current of energy will travel the path of least resistance…


I have placed my hand upon the negative                                                                    

I will soon place my hand upon the positive


As the current will flow and push out the demons and let in the light so that I may finally see the path that I must take.

Where a man and his soul are concerned, what do "critics" matter? Great poem filled to the brim with spiritual light and determination.

what a wonderful and inspirational write! to be able to invoke this kind of affirmation during those moments of weakness, when we allow negativity to rise to the fore, is a gift from the Creator. To be able to recognize and utilize it, is indeed a blessing. Thank you for sharing!

Self-control and discipline is one of the Chinese arts of living...

Good thoughts. Good prayer. Self-control is a wonderful fruit of the Spirit. :-)
