1.   How do you detect

the genuine from the fake ones?

In knowing the false

the differences matter

and not similarities.


2.  Beware the devil

posing as angel of light,

Adds few grains of truth

to what’s false and counterfeit

and lures you to his tactics.

  1. This is excellent, Cynthia–yes, it IS the differences that matter, and sometimes we’re tempted to compromise if there are “some similarities”. Great good word! God bless you–love, sis Caddo


    The mind may be smart
    But the heart feels and feeling
    Truly understands
