Whose hand are you holding God or Satan Love or hate Fear or faith Happiness or sadness Creativity or destruction Sunsets or storm Grief or joy Freedom or bondage Flowers or weeds Beauty or darkness Heaven or hell Stretch your hand to God like a child picking up daises Or you pick up thrones to feel pain The choice is yours Who do you follow Whose hand are you holding Satan or God
