Devil’s Coin

Hapless. Helpless. Hopeless

There is no other choice but one

Rather than give up on life

I will make a pact with the Devil


So, I travelled down to hades

Into the lowest part of hell, I descend

The stench of debtors

Rots away in His prison


With the Devil, I sat to dine as though in a gamble

Rolling the coin on the table

He offered a smirk

In exchange for my soul, he agreed to pack


With mixed feelings, I left with the coin

In killing off a threat, I created a monster

Too late to realize freedom is riches

Now, I live under the constant shadow of the Devil
