Competing With Life And Sin


If life was not so wicked
Then my soul would be a lot more uplifted
Distraction, lust, and fear are all afflicted
The harder I try the faster I fall
Sin is addicting but not pleasing at all
I pray about every hard situation but still can’t fight them off
I thought I was strong but I can’t even stand up tall
My mind feel like it is on co-pilot I am feeling so soft
This might be a reason why I thought I was bounded to fall
Many said I was wise, but I feel like a foolish man
Sometimes I can’t remember a thing maybe I have short attention span
Life and sin are two individuals that are hard to understand
I would of easily perish if not God my helping hand

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
