Looking at the mirror with good day’s pleasure I see slothfulness’ glamour taunting with delight’s leisure Yet ready to attack sense of honor defying time-worth’s treasure So defiant; not a generous donor offering gift that costs much pressure! I challenge you, my body’s indolent suitor upon your procrastination’s grandeur I’m aware of your wastefulness’ color since programmed schedule you want to injure I fight you for putting me in meaninglessness’ rigor against unjustified torture Dampening my work-ardor by your entertainment-indulgence culture! Face now my spiritual amphetamine fervor straightening your laziness-posture I vanquish your terror that’s underestimating my devotion-measure See how I combat fruitlessness’ horror striving for a productive future While trusting God with His grace-anchor, I press on by His might so sure! Don’t shake me with doubts’ tremor; I confront you upon truth’s nurture You'll be overtaken by my Conqueror … just prepare for a painful capture Never dare me; you’re a deceitful actor trapped inside reality’s exposure I’m driven by the Victor Who has mastered very well human nature! Along my stewardship’s armor, I smite you with discipline-censure Having the Lord’s good favor... I dominate over your lethargic displeasure Upheld by His strong succor, I subdue your destructive gesture Trained by my champion Mentor... I arise toward faith-performance venture! Thus, by diligence-motor, ... you, spirit of the sluggard, I adjure Yield to the task-commander’s tenor …follow work-ethics’ procedure Escape from vanity’s galore …be prodded to toil and endure Girded by hardships’ candor …stand up with zealousness-feature! Opponent of losing savor, Surrender your worthless seizure for healthy cure Accept that you’re beaten by genuine labor midst your impatience-tenure I thank my Savior for righteous valor making me win on persistence juncture Guided constantly by the Director, I persist in His triumphant service-business* pasture!
Personification with rhyme form *Romans 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord. April 7, 2019
