Striving Toward Perfection - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Steady struggle with sin
Becomes big battlefield;
To emerge so victorious,
Preparation must be fulfilled.

Put on the Almighty's armor,
Standing safely with courage;
Defeat the enemy's evil forces
And tricks of this dark age.

Firm faith is your shield,
Stopping the fiery arrows;
They're aimed at you by satan
To bring burning sorrows.

For as long as we live
In this so sick, stubborn world;
Abound in faith, love, and hope,
Be always adamant, not cold.

Reach the ultimate goal -
The promised salvation;
Be holy and blameless,
Striving towards perfection.
