Don't Sell Your Soul Part I (re-post) & Part II

Don't Sell Your Soul 

Part I (originally posted 4/23/19)

 

I told him not to sell his soul 

That it would be unwise

The devil cheats and always wins

The end is your demise.

I told him not to sell his soul

It would be careless and askew

Satan laughs at all the fools who follow at his shoe.

I told him not to sell his soul

That he would never get it back

To find success, you must be strong

You've got to stay on track.

I told him not to sell his soul

For he could be the one

That he should seek enlightenment

But not lose sight of home.

I told him not to sell his soul

The pain would never end

Agony and heartache

Will be your only friends.

I told him not to sell his soul

I begged him, please, do not!

Lucifer will tell you lies

He'll take everything you've got.

I told him not to sell his soul

To himself he must be true

And for those who love him, 

Do the same.

Don't sell your soul

Don't play that game

 

Part II

I told him not to sell his soul

But he just could not wait

He wanted money, fortune, fame

Now it is too late.

I told him not to sell his soul

Alas he did not listen

He bargained with his very life

And now toils in contrition.

I told him not to sell his soul

Yet my pleas he did not heed

He sold it to Beelzebub

All because of greed.

I told him not to sell his soul

I really miss my friend

The Prince of Darkness claimed his prize

And so this is the end.

Please don't ever sell your soul

To the Infernal Duke

Even in an offhand way

It may not be a fluke.

I told him not to sell his soul

And now I tell you too

The deal can never be undone

No matter what you do.

Don't play that game, for if you do

You always must remember

That once within the Gates of Hell

Your soul you must surrender.

Don't sell you soul.

I really enjoyed this Lisa, fantastic use of language and a great reminder to resist that temptation. ?

That is great Lisa. I have been trying to do the same in a sense. More trying myself though with my own limited musical talent. It just feels sometimes though that a particular poem just wants to be sung. If you do I hope you post a soundfile.

Thanks Adam!
I like the idea of a song. I have a few poems that I would really like see put to music. I'm working on getting some musically talented people together.

Really thought that was great. There felt like there was definitely a melody to it. Did you write it as a song?

So good Lisa. And so sad. Far too many people sell their souls for greed....

And you would know I like the rhyming....
