“Blink of the Eye.”

Even before we are ousted from the womb
There is evil plotting against us
Whispers of malice spoken into existence
Darkness forever unleashed
If we had true sight
If we could see the hideous malevolence
The warriors in us would awaken quickly
Or we would be run through in a heartbeat.

Do you not agree there is death everywhere?
If not in our face then it’s not in our minds
But our blindness doesn’t vanquish it
Without faith the unseen goes forgotten
This is how we live our lives
Disillusioning ourselves
Stumbling through the bad
And sensing life is generally good.

It is not my intention to discredit
The beauty that is life
Miracles spring up around us
And there is much good in our world
The blistering light offsets the darkness
As night evolves into day
And as sure as there are demons surrounding us at all times
There are magnificent angels, more glorious and radiant than we can imagine.

Let us thank God our eyes are shielded
We should be grateful to be so oblivious
Each day we step foot out our doors
And the day could be our last
How wonderful it is not knowing when our final hour shall come
What a blessing to not be privy to our fate
‘Cause when the darkness closes in
This was just a blink of the eye.
