Eyes

He looked into the eyes of the beast
Depraved promises flooded his brain
He tried so hard to avert his gaze
To prevent being devoured from within

Depraved promises flooded his brain.
"You must satisfy your every desire,
to prevent being devoured from within."
He wanted so badly to believe the lie

"You must satisfy your every desire.
She is my gift use her as you wish."
He wanted so badly to believe the lie,
He could lose himself within his desire

"She is my gift use her as you wish."
Luxurious skin, long flowing hair.
He could lose himself within his desire
Within his soul he was being held back

Luxurious skin, long flowing hair
He tried so hard to avert his gaze
Within his soul he was being held back
He looked into the eyes of God

    Our life is indeed a battle between our carnal desire and our soul's willingness.To gaze in the eyes of God at our most needed time is a wise act not to fail to weakness.Very inspirational !!! Bravo.
