The Ultimate Power (Christianity in one poem)

Disclaimer: I wrote this when I was 10. Then I was a practicing Methodist with (apparent to me now) a tad bit of extremist in me.

Ironically I grew up to be an agnostic lesbian whose poetry probably has gotten worse over the years. If there is a God, this proves he has a sense of humor. :)
Doth behold the power in him?

Do it now or later take what is left...
and burn in Hell with eternal death.

Determine the path that you've found.
Make sure that it's straight and not that of roun…
