Puppet On the Devil's Strings

Puppet On the Devil’s Strings

On the outside
You’re painted white
To hide your imperfections
You hide it well
But time will tell
The luster of your lessons

Though I may see
It’s not just me
Others have found you out
While darkness falls
Light still crawls
Time to scan your amount

Pain and suffering mark this world
But don’t give in an ounce
Trials and adversity fill this world
Fail, and the devil may pounce

Angels glide upon their wings
Demons fly with use of springs
Razor sharp, words can sting
Your worldly favor, most will cling
Let go the distraction, reaction brings
If not…
You remain a puppet on the devil’s strings.

Hello authors! I go by Dorian T. Gray; it's my author name. I'm hoping that it can be a way to keep my legal self somewhat apart from my inner self so when I get to my destination I can live a somewhat normal, mundane-ish life... Well aside from the charities and other stuff that I hope to attend.

My aim is to present my work here in hopes that everyone will give me their feedback (critiques and encouragement) and polish me into a better author. I will strive to do the same. I think that we all have a chance to be great writers but we need each other to grind away the awkward and ugly parts and make our pieces shine.

Thanks for Reading,

D. T. Gray
