Temptations Of Life

Temptation
I saw you with my clear eyes.
I thought I could steal an innocent look,
But in the end my eyes got hooked.

Temptation
I touched you a little with my fingers,
Thinking I could just fiddle and run.
Now addiction to you has just begun.

Temptation
I could have chosen to flee from you
But I walked through your alluring doors.
See me now so unhappy on your floors!

Temptation.
You crept into my heart and stayed.
Why didn’t I shove you aside once,
And stay untainted as I used to be?

Temptation
I gave you but a little foothold.
Why have you become such a big stronghold,
That seems to hold me down, captive?

Oh God of my salvation
Deliver me from the temptations of life,
That have kept me down and bound.
So I can boldly say, victory is mine at last!
