I have been dead so many times. My mortal body can handle this hate no more. I was in the flesh, the motion of my sins. Those sins take occasion by the commandment, Deceived me, then by it..killing me. Wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. I can feel Me. A wretched human being. I let desperation stole my soul. Who can deliver me from this body of this death? Whenever I would do well, Evil and hate are present with me. And now..where am I?

This is a very deep poem, Shirely...I can feel the desperation here. I agree with is the evil one who accuses and makes us feel worthless. WE ARE NOT! We all mess up. We all fall, but by God's grace we can stand. :) Thought provoking write. Thanks for your visit to my work. I really appreciate it! :)

There's a saying that goes something like this: "When the devil sees us achieving & overcoming our goals, he throws obstacles in life's path to try and hold us down and lead us astray." This is that kind of test, within self. When lost, create your own path. That's why we have choice. ;) Strong writing!
