 Poetic Verses

set for life


Set for life or
 left for dead
Stacks of money
 puts a target
 on your head
Locked in a room
 like a prisoner

maybe its better
 to live life poor
No worries of guns
 aimed at the door
Life's good to feel sane
Streets paved with gold
are hot coals
the devil made

Tricking a Christian from god
Shopping, gambling,
 and buying new cars

Are diamond a girl's
 best friend
Or something we
 should have left
 in the ground
so much blood shed
a pretty thing someone
 found

 a dream comes true
 or maybe a nightmare
Surfacing to the top
 prayers been finally
answered or has
The devil come in

Wishes granted goes
 horribly wrong are hard
To stop
Through the world
 and in the air there's sin

In a garden
 weeds grow and
 flourish fast
Innocence is straggled
 wither into dust and gone

Nothing gold can stay
 and nothing green can last
At judgment we all must
 answer for our wrongs
