‘Enough’ and Other Poems by Felton Craig The Society November 15, 2012 Poetry 6 Comments Enough There is a God sized hole within the innermost regions of every soul. Its dark, and it is deep, its shadows are weeping with the gnashing of teeth. We try our vain restraints to fill its desires, trying to compensate things that take us higher. Vestiges fellowship, forever searching the delicious anxiousness when our passions erupt revealing to us that enough is never enough to satisfy the space, of what seems to be a perpetually faced and a purposely placed God sized hole of what is an unsatisfied state, revealing this to us our passions desires will never be enough to satisfy the space of a God sized hole of an unsatisfied state. Sonnet 6:12 I contest not against you my brother nor any vessel that carries it through, the sin that bleeds is prompted by another though it’s your brother that carries it through and I, myself is as guilty as you. The first to fall to envy and to pride has legions of demons trained to pursue, one third of heaven beguiled by his lies one third of heaven that is destined to die. He is the enemy that we cannot see when we recognize the sin that’s inside as his abilities personified. We fight a fight that is beyond our sight and the flesh is the stage on which we fight. The enemy is not the one we see nor is it sins that lay beneath the skin. In the darkness of the heart, he roams free ruling the dark from the darkness within, ruling the hearts of those whose life is sin. The prince of darkness, the angle of death and unclean spirits attack the souls of men in our conscious unredeemed humanness, a stage of flesh, in the vastness of the mind we fight a fight that is life or death, no particular place, just all the time we fight spirits in spiritual things with a faith of substance in things unseen. Footnote: This poem contains references to the Bible; Ephesians 6:11-13: “for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Revelations Chapter 12 verse 4 states: “His tail drew a third of the stars from heaven and threw them to the earth.” In Wilmington’s Guide to the Bible, under the heading The Theological Method; the Doctrine of Satan, in Chapter 9, it states “it was the devil that organized and led the first rebellion against God. Revelation 12:4 indicated that he persuaded one-third of heaven’s angels to march with him.

Reply Felton Craig November 25, 2012 Thank you very much Tony, I hope to be adding something shortly Reply Carolyn November 24, 2012 Very well written. I have read other poems by Felton Craig and they tend to make you look deep inside of your soul to see what really fills that “God placed hole.” You get caught up in the settings that he has placed before you and before you know it, off you go into a world of realism and fantasy. I look forward to reading more from him.
