Letter 2 The Lord

Dear Lord, something tells me that in my last letter
I wasn't as open with you, I could've done better
There were things on my mind
That I sought
And fought
To put behind
It's difficult to paint a piece of art
Without the proper heart
But why is it on any given day, I come to you for blessings
But only end up learning harsh lessons
I feel you try to teach me
Without an effort to reach me
At the same time the Devil tries to leech me
As well as try to preach to me
Loud as a bell toll 
God cleanse my soul
You're my savior I was told
Grant me life as i grow old
Every other situation
Leads me to temptation
Whether participation
In suicide or fornication
A fight inside
Between humbleness and pride
Rid me of this anger
I wish the Devil was a stranger
But he's not
The cause of my soul to rot
I'm getting so hot
Hand me a glass of cold Holy Water, and I need a lot
You think I'm reading poetry, but I'm just talking
You grin because you think I'm running to you , but in reality I'm walking
Taking my precious time
I know denial is a crime
But we on the same side
Like lemon to a lime
Spiritually wounded by the Devil's knife
I attempted to take my life
Depleted of my might
Trying to discontinue the fight
Begging for your forgiveness
I align myself with the Christians
As the Devil preys on me
I pray to you
If I lay on my deathbed, my pillow is truth
Under it is blessing money, like I lost a tooth
I'm scared so in your open arms is where I retreat to
On a winding path
To unleashing my wrath
Up to my neck in sins
I need a blood bath
But from your flesh is the blood that I need
To sanitize my heart of gluttony and greed
The first 2 attempts failed, but the 3rd may be the charm
At that moment I may not be able to grasp your arm
This is the beginning of my troubles
But they've seemed to double
Please clothe me in this cold weather
As I prepare for you, my 3rd Letter...Letter...Letter
