The Jaded Helm

This God that some idolize, did he introduce good and evil for there to be a balance?
Could it be simply to keep Lucifer occupied whilst he takes an extremely long leave of absence?
Maybe to have this devilish presence provides him with a nemesis to compete against
To resurrect within him a sating renewed excitement?

Explain to me this Lucifer again, the one you use evil to epitomize
He offers luxurious pleasures your God given body yearn for yet must deny such seductive price
Over this earthly plane where a ‘Master’ corrals his flock to live and breed
Amongst so much deprivation, pestilence because of material greed

It is men that say, "God created man as a reflection of his own image"
However if we were to reflect, man has simply created an icon to seem as they wish?
I have to ask, ‟Are you a willing believer of the faith that ‛One’ has monopolized?”
Does your obedience develop from God fearing he who demands only he be immortalized?

To be told good and evil is simply black or white raises the question
To look very close why do they both appear ashen?
One now pale and faded…the shadow of a once gleaming light
The other embers glimmer, as it dampens, no longer aflame insight
