The Devil and Me

24 Sep

The devil came to me last night

Offered a future long and bright

A lottery win, a pot of gold

If to him my soul was sold

I listened to him for a while

Seeing behind his cunning smile

Fame and fortune he would give

A long and happy life to live

The only price I had to pay

Was to give my soul away

My soul he wants for his own sake

He could only receive he could not take

I stood and looked him in the eye

Beneath a stunning moonlight sky

You cannot have my soul today

It is not mine to give away

    he sure can pull us, tempt us, one has to be strong to fight against him and call on the strongest one for help 🙂
