Sonnet: God, Seal My Purified Soul! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

God take away the urge to sin from me;
My body’s weary from devils’ assaults;
The devils come to tempt me frequently;
My weakened spirit leads me to more faults!

God, tell me how I can be pure of heart?
I succumb to temptations so often;
I fail to learn the devils’ wily part;
Forgive me Lord: May your anger soften!

World’s sinfulness has grown in leaps and bounds;
Just say the word and my soul shall be healed;
Protect us Lord from Satan’s frantic hounds;
Make pure my heart and let entrance be sealed!

The devils roam the world in search of souls;
The Holy Spirit thwarts their evil roles!

Most lovingly dedicated to Poetess Sandra Fowler,
(On this special day when she found her poesy)
as a Thanksgiving to God, Almighty.

    Your wonderful dedication has touched my soul, Dr. Celes.Thank you much more than mere words can say. I will treasure this beautiful sonnet always as a reminder of that day when God first gave me poetry in the Salem church in West Columbia..With much respect and admiration for your own God-given gift.,
