This is about fear of Satan I once had.
Hearing about his evilness on a regular basis
I was raised Christian.
Nonetheless, the stories caused me to be terrified
of the Devil.
The thought of Satan
sent fear through my entire being.
At night, before going to bed,
I would pray.
I still watched from beneath the sheets
to make sure he wasn't near.
This also made me scared to go downstairs.
I could not bring myself to enter the basement.
I had dreams that Satan was there.
Now, I am no longer afraid.
