Only One Hero

Only one from age to age
Can conquer all my earthly foes
Darkness has no strength nor power
When Christ is lifted on the throne

Lucifer, His highest angel
Minister of all heaven’s song
Decided he could rise above
But thus was thrown to earth below

Now he knows his fate is sealed
Twisting truth and blinding minds
Tells us there are other heroes
Clouds our ever wandering eyes

Engages us in earthly wars
Of hate and prejudice alike
While serving us with blood red dye
And calling it the finest wine

And some will sup whate’er he gives
Until his laughter bellows loud
But his days are short
Please ask to live
And take Christ as your Savior now

Today’s prompt is heroes. To write about a super hero you had as a child (I liked Superman and all of the movies following) or one you may have now. Though many people have come to my aide in life I only have one real eternal one.

 

 

 

 

 

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    I like your theological take on the Super Hero prompt…. The new Testament is full of the Super Scenarios still to come! Very nice!

  2. I think when it comes down to it, you’re right. There can be only one Hero with a capital H. But there are those too with the spirit of Christ wholly in them. It gives me goosebumps to think of what He and others have done for the sake of others. There’s no greater love than that of the one who sacrifices himself for his brother. Chills.

    A strong poem of faith….
    I especially like these lines
    “Engages us in earthly wars
    Of hate and prejudice alike
    While serving us with blood red dye
    And calling it the finest wine”
