FLESH

I suffered through the dark
Hoping hoping i could make a mark.
Timeless struggle to live
But couldn't hold back the things i believe.

Desiring all along to be righteous.
Even the path way to live i was conscious,
But held back in pain with nature.
Was focused but uncertain of the future.

The battle becoming more stronger
My flesh, the brain behind the danger.
All day, my spirit never rest but fighting.
And my flesh also by all means pulling.

Look, i stray and mislay my heart;
Diving aimlessly to the world path like that.
The end of which  is destruction
But my mind refuse to take instruction.

The He Goat arises in me no resting
After so much prayer and long fasting.
The world keeps showing me things.
Things that makes my spirit thin.

No! I said, 'I don't want to look.
Not too long in the same act i brook
Many years spent in building
Smashed with an act, sweet but destroying.

How can i overcome?
I cant fight being alone.
Please Lord, don't let me perish
For i am the child you love and cherish.
