Dear Boy




God is at the Doorsteps and he is asking for me by name

What am I to say to this being for him I have so shamed

Worry not dear brother for you will soon clearly see

It is not what youve done in this life but what you promise me

I cannot fathom the depth of kindness that your heart holds true

What I can tell you god is that you know not what you do

Let me in out of the rain for the wolves are at my feet

...Pondering I look around and see were short of meat...

Good son of Abraham my boy have mercy on this soul

Please pardon the door ajar so I may warm by the coals

...i accept defeat and welcome the meat, I trudge on toward the door...Heave and breathe the door ajar I must heave some more

envelope me in a shadow, stir in me a fright

I look around and come to see im surrounded by night

what my boy did you think you could dine on my flesh

dont you understand good boy that this was a test

Dazed and weakened I pull myself up on highn feet

what good lord you say to me atop all this sleet

I follow only you my lord, you must see faith in that

Play me boy you dirty snake you filthy little rat

we now have plenty of time to understand your wicked horrid thoughts

the devil I am dear boy now the time has come to rot

noooomy lord, your feasting bowl, not I, not this evehavent I brought this township good fortune from down upon my sleeves

no matter wise crook for your wicked thoughts have turned you over to mecome..come..and come just more and it is hell where we shall be…”


And just like that the boy flew down right into the ground the devilish figure that no one saw never made a sound.

The story goes that the dear young boy lost his little mind but in doing so he lost it bad or so he confined.

Interesting read Randy. Like the conversational tone, but really like the way the font size and spacing is shifted throughout. Creatively done:)

Thank you sir. Much appreciated. I am unsure as to whether the font is showing as it should. It should not be a traditional, easily recognizable standard but a more jagged, hard linear. I am on a different computer and I am seeing a common font display. It was a font that I installed so maybe I installed said font incorrectly. Haha either way...thank you greatly sir, your comments are most appreciated.
