The Devil’s Waters

I know what it means to be young

I remember bathing in the devil’s waters

Consequences were rare in sight

Every now and then I still dip my toes

The price to pay is much higher

The waters are not so forgiving

They want more

I carry the burns inside

Where they never fade away

I know God can see them

I stopped trying to hide a long time ago

You can lose a lot in those waters

Good thing I was empty

And kept my mouth closed

  1. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    • Sorry I didn’t reply sooner, I only just read this comment and removed it from my spam folder. Thank you for viewing my blog! I started out with a paid plan on WordPress and it’s been so great! Sometimes it’s a good idea to start out with a free platform but you have more options with a paid one, even with the cheapest, most basic plan. I definitely recommend using WordPress as a high percentage of websites use it making it easier to connect with people and gain new followers. I hope this helped if you haven’t already made a decision.
