The Treacherous Knight

Striking fear and horror in all who hear it;
Accompanied by visions of eternal torment.
The tale of him has made strong men weak,
Overshadowing the dregs of religion in defeat.
Utter of his legend in the season of the night.
Whisper of his coming glory revealed in death’s light.
Cower in veiled respect to hell’s most treacherous knight.

Inspiration: Poem describing the Beast or Antichrist who is to come. Christians must stand in the faith, knowing that what is written shall surely be revealed. Based upon II Thessalonians 2:8-9 “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders…” ~ TRP ~

‘Tis the Night (Tritina Style)

‘Tis the night before my new life begins.
What will happen as the new day emerges,
Fear, regret, or earnest expectations?

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained:” or just futile expectations,
While a scenario of possible failure begins.
Through the clutter of thoughts, hope emerges.

Confidence of a bright future emerges,
Making me a slave to raised expectations.
A smirk, a smile, a new expression on my face begins.

My new life begins, emerges, with glorious expectations.

Inspiration: This poetic piece describes anticipation that we all feel when embarking on new endeavors; the Christian remains confident because of Christ’s presence. Based upon Philippians 1:6 – “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” ~TRP~
