The Devil’s a Liar

By Demond A. Jackson

Is it me or does it seem like the “Real” i.e, “The Righteous” just can’t seem to win for losing. Over the past couple of months I’ve been struggling with people, associates and comrades who will bite you in the back, abuse your character, devalue respect and do dishonorable things all in the name of selfishness/ F%#k what your going through its all about me right now!”

Over the years being honest, respectful and a man of good character has taken me a long way, kept me in the grace of God and has found victorious in every battle that has cross my path. But all these traits have not save me from the Devils advantage takers who has abuse my friendship, faith and trust.

As I grow older, I’m finding myself becoming coarse and tiring of these type of people. Especially those who come from the same struggle I come from, those who I have done nothing but right by and treated better than anyone else has treated.

Its really starting to zap my energy!

Yet, yesterday I was talking to a convict about his release and opportunity that existed for him with his talents. During our conversation he said something to me that hit my heart like a bullet and this is what he said:

“God will not let the Devil out do him… He’s God!”

That statement echoed in my mind like God had spoke them himself. It was what I needed to hear… No matter what I go through, no matter how it seems like the good guys finish last. The truth of the matter is God never allows the Devil to out do him or those he bestows his grace. Did the Roman’s out do Jesus? Surely not! God words has blossomed and people magnify Jesus name till this day.

Did the assassin who shot and killed Martin Luther King Jr. out do Martin? I don’t think so, most of you can’t even remember the name of the man who shot Martin, but you know the date of the national holiday in which we celebrate Martin for his contribution to this nation and the upliftment of the oppressed.

Realizing this… my paths foundation has been reinforced, my visions made clearer and my faith enhanced. No man is beyond being shaken, knocked down or burned. Yet he who knows God knows his ability, his strength and the fact that he lost no wars. Life is a battle… fighters are bruised, and are forced to learn to endure and deal with pain.

Are you a fighter? If so.. keep fighting, guard your grill. I know it hurt taking punches that are thrown below the belt. But no matter what people say in your corner. Refuse to throw in the towel and know in your heart that “The Devil is a liar…”

I Love my Loveone’s who are truly committed and are fighting with all they got. Stand Tall… FA-DEATH-Doe!!!!

As you can see my name is Demond Andrae Jackson. My comrades and Love one's call me D-jay. I'm the co-founder of Convicted Soap Box, and the MENSTOP!/GIRL...STOP! re-entry programs. I consider myself a literary artist, be it poetry, editorials, composition, music or screenplays "My my power and words are my weapons..."
I'm the son of an African American queen, born and raised in Los Angeles California, where I was groomed in its infectious gang culture. For the past decade and half, the federal Bureau of Prison has been a institution of self-education, self-evaluation and the reason I now possess knowledge of self. That being so, I now strive to expose the solution to the problems that our plaguing our communities, America's youth and this country as a whole. There's a saying: "There's nothing new up under the sun." Simply put, if there's one thing in this universe existence, that has seen all thing that mankind has done or not done, it is the sun. That means the moral dissension that taking place currently is nothing new. Historian have written about times where the moral fabric of a nation was so tattered where the only solution for change was war a destruction. This country was built and establish to be the nation it is today. By the disenfranchised, those who were being oppressed by the Queen and her fellow Aristocrats. Therefore if this country is to change once again for the better. It will begin and must begin with the actions and the voice of the disenfranchised i.e, America's minorities, poor and it's third class citizen the American Ex-felon. That being said I'm committed to "WRITING MY WRONGS..." and sewing seed of knowledge and truth that will blossom into peace, prosperity and positive change
