BEING A CHRISTIAN IS DARN HARD:BUT WORTH THE WHILE

He sits at a park bench,
Having his lunch as usual,
And as he tries to take a 
bite of
his delicious sandwich,
He bites his finger...
She walks gracefuly past 
him,
Swinging her hips with 
much
pride and gist,
Her cologne seems to be 
pulling
him behind her,
And he takes two steps 
ready to
devour her seductive 
seductions,
But then he trips back to 
his
senses,
And remembers he is not 
to give
in to the flesh,
Thus walks the opposite
direction,
Reminiscing how being a
christian, is darn hard but 
worth
the while.

She basks peacefuly at 
the side of
the swimming pool,
Enjoying her off-day free 
of work,
Sipping her lemonade 
then
suddenly there is shade.
She opens her eyes,
Sees the buffed up figure,
Cubes as precise as the 
hardness
of diamond,
Her eyes salivate,
Her mouth perspirate,
He lifts her up with his
disturbingly beautiful 
arms,
And he heads to the 
changing
room.
It all seemed a dream,
She was literally swept off 
her
feet...
But along the way, she 
stopped
him.
She got down from his 
arms and
ran,
Scared of what she might 
have
done,
Realising that being a 
christian, is
darn hard but worth the 
while.

2years out of 
rehabilitation,
A year into his new found
salvation,
He had not had a drink 
that long,
And he was not planning 
to any
time soon.
But as fate would have it,
Destiny's plans were quite
different.
Promoted to Vice Chair,
The boys decie to take 
him to a
night out,
Afterall his wife was 
away on
vacation,
So what would be his 
reason of
not having a little fun?
Rounds and rounds of 
beer come,
But he sticks to his coke,
Till he is called chicken 
and he
wants to prove that he is 
eagle.
One bottle down,
Together with 3years of
dedication,
2nd one halfway,
then he hears a still voice 
urging
him to stop.
He does...stands up and 
walks
away,
Repenting the misdeed,
And admits that being a 
christian
is darn hard but worth 
the while.
