Conquering evil


Money and Power
That's every broke man's dream
I may not be rich or poor but somewhere in between
I have everything I need but I yearn for more
These seven capital vices have come knocking at my door
Should I let them in I ask myself and conquer them all
But Greed and Lust have conquered me
While left with no freedom
I let them all in
Am I worried? Yes I am. Corruption fills my head
And when I’m gone I’ll always know
That it wasn’t all for nothing
All these problems fill my mental
Sin after Sin
There’s not much that I can do
But what I can do is this
Hold onto my sanity and try to resist
For in the end God is with me
That’s the reason I exist

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
