Strings that Control Us

December 19, 2010
By , Mexia, TX
We are God's Pinocchio.
He cut off our strings,
Gave us free will,
And now we're a real boy.
But we are Lucifer's puppets,
And he is our puppeteer.
He teases and tricks us
Into moving the way he strings us
With his strings he’s attached to us.

Your imagery paints such a pretty honest picture... Very creative and true.... it makes you look at things in a really different way... Like I wouldn't have thought of this, but it makes so much sense!
