The War of the Worlds


Spirit against Flesh
Right versus Wrong
Good or Evil

The battles wage inside me

I know which I want to win, I think
But then again sin is usually soo damn satisfying

My soul is confused
It shouldn't be this way though, cos I know the Truth, the Word, the Law

Why then does this age-old war tear my mind into two?
Why did I get a choice?

My innermost being cries out from within in worship to the creator
After all that's what it was made to do.

But the outer covering smothers its voice and pleads with me to feed its indulgences;
greed, lust, manipulation, control

I succumb
I receive redemption, rebirth, resurrection
I succumb
I receive redemption, rebirth, resurrection again
I succumb
I receive redemption, rebirth, resurrection again

Is this how it will always be?

I'm really tired of running around in circles
Lord, I'm begging you
Show me the way out.

With all my love,
Your daughter
