Temptation


The hand of temptation fits like a glove
No one to take heed, just the voice from above

Can you say no, or will you’re resistance resign
Urge just too much, have you the strength to decline

You know that it’s wrong, this thing that you’re doing
But have you the inner strength to stop you pursuing

At the point of decision there’s no going back
Make you’re choice, do you resist or do you crack

Just you’re inner conscience to stop you right now
This thing that you’re doing you can’t disavow

Only you’re conscience and a voice from above
Will shake off this temptation that fit’s like a glove

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
