Okay, well, it's not like I'm a prolific poet or anything, but I was recently browsing through some really old archives of my computer and I ran across a poem I wrote back in high school English class. Now that I have a poetry section, perhaps I'll be inspired to write some more poems.
The Great Controversy Begun
It all began with one speck of pride,
hidden deep down in old Lucifer's hide.
Who knows how it all began,
but through his heart it ran,
Polluting everything in its way
until it spoiled his every day.
One day God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit
had a meeting to decide how to create it.
They also composed a plan of salvation
of how to save this wonderful creation.
Lucifer was mad that he was not invited
to this meeting of which all heaven was excited.
So to the happy angels he began to draw
a picture of God's "restrictive" law.
He told them true happiness was to be
from God's wonderful law totally free.
Thus he began his great efforts
to win angels as his demonic converts.
With great love, God held a tribunal,
but Satan refused to repent at all.
Then God said with great sorrow,
"Lucifer, you'll have to leave tomorrow."
Some of the angels were very sad,
but most of them were seething mad.
On Earth Satan began a new work.
He tricked Adam and Eve - what a jerk.
He said,"Now this is my world
on which my wrath can be hurled."
But God lovingly sent His only Son
to end the awful controversy so horribly begun.
By Jonathan Vigh (for Sophomore English, c. 1991)
