Keep Fighting - Poem by Tareq Jalabi

as I lie on this cliff
pondering all my thoughts
knowing that there is a God
knowing that there is sin
but still I sin
hating myself for doing it again everyday
wanting to jump off this cliff
still I cant
its as if theres an unknown force guiding me away
still on this cliff thinking about jumping
I stare at the stars
feeling like a speck of dirt
I look off the edge
but turn around because thats not who I am
Id rather keep fighting
than give up on everything
knowing giving up will just send me to hell
but fighting day by day
theres still a slim chance of hope for me

    sin is an illusion to torment you into guilty pleasures of more sin for those that do not guilt trip themselves find no reason to sin, for you know there is a god then let her fill you with light until sin is something that cannot touch you..you are a powerful thinker never give up the fight to a thought of sin (Report) Reply
