I wanted to versify about the glory I see

But the darkness and pain ever returned to me

As I was called to fight as my tears made a plea

I employed the truth which girded me so free

As I prepared for battle, the light gave me peace

I walked a hundred miles on nails with bare feet

The shield of faith provided protection so sweet

As Satan’s effectiveness began to decrease

Resisting temptation that rained from above

The helmet of salvation fit my head like a glove

I CRIED OUT with TRUTH, peace, and glory thereof

While the sword of the spirit took hold with love

Discipline lost with prayer slowly faded

Then chaos ensued and love became hatred

So I started over as my soul wore abraded

Perseverance it seems, left us sufficiently jaded
