A Battle Within

A battle rages on
     within my soul.
My flesh seeks its own desire
Though higher purpose 
Whispers quietly within.
This beast cries out,
In agonizing shout
To have its way
     without delay 
     despite the cost.
Will all be lost?

But higher purpose whispers quietly within,
Waiting to be heard;
Conquering the beast
And Love given to the least.
What master will I serve?

    We all have our inner struggles, always fierce. This is a really nice write chronicling yours. :) Which side wins? The one you feed.
