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 and 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 monopolised?”
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 incite
