The Rising

These damned temptations; they haunt me day and nigh.
Rooted from the deepest depths of hell, where even angels cry.

The unending taunt of which I cannot refuse;
The promising of joy, and yet I continue to lose.

I pray emphatically, for an extraction from these mares;
Just a brief escape from the infinite snares.

I cannot ask for help, for if they know I am shunned,
And yet they look down at me, as if their conscience were stunned.

I have recently found a plan of action however,
And pain it will bring as joy will be severed.

For this joy is false as a loosened saddle;
And the only way out is to head into battle.

    Great job, Josh...It's true we are bombarded with temptations everyday so we pray sincerely for deliverance in those times when we're weak. Keep writing, my friend. You've got something to say!Always, Annalise
