A Tale of Misappropriation

Satan hopes.
Having employed his own free will
to weave a neophytic evil into vision,
yet, short on faith he coerced hope to work for him;
another discount pawning of God's secret stuff.
Holy expectations, this residue of sacred peace
which only God could fabricate
and trade for our true resignations,
this special booty: hope,
Satan hijacks,
holds as hostage for his sanity.
Later, after his transfer to Gehenna's basement,
discovered in this rebel's locker was the diary;
a rambling chronicle of rants and curiosities,
reflective thoughts and strategies
which culminated with a simple revelation:
"It is not the outcome we had hoped for.".
