The Devil’s World

By YoungJoey

 

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled,; 
Am sure even the smartest were fooled,; 
who has seen the devil? Who has seen his face?; 
yet we walk with him every single day,; 
oh yes you do, don’t act surprised,; 
for the devil is with u, maybe by your side; 

for 30 pieces of silver the devil lurked,; 
In the brand new Mercedes your pastor wants,; 
in the excess change the conductor gave you; 
In the landlord who never forgave you; 
the devil rules the world and now its clear how; 
think about it my friend, think right now; 
what is the one thing you really need,; 
what is the one thing u pursue with greed; 
they say money doesn’t grow on trees; 
but in the garden of Eden, maybe it did;

Great friends look just like you

Never in my life have I found one such as you,
At times I wondered how I would deserve somebody like you,
That you would be mine and mine alone,
And still love me so much and your presence adorns,
Surely I am honored, yet again privileged today,
Hoping that a day shall come for me to hold you every day,
All day, as I listen to what you have to say,
May our friendship blossom, and the love germinate,
Wherever we go, I know the news we’ll generate,
Every time I know that this statement is true,
Notably that, great friends look just like you,
Daily I speak to you and keep appreciating that,
Endlessly, you keep me inside your heart.
