I am a new creature created in Christ
born to conquer the nature that corrupts this life.
Call the coroner because Iím crucifying this flesh
who constantly contends with me and attempts to repress
With the Comforter aboard I am able
to conform to my Lord and saviorís
beliefs and behaviors
to become a sweet smelling savor,
salt full of flavor.
Conviction constrains me to continue this quest
I compete to comply with Christís commands and requests
- living a life of love leaves me lavishly blessed.

Nice description of being "new." Minor suggestions - and you know where I am coming from as an English Major - check spelling a little and use punctuation a little more effectively to break up the central thoughts. To me one of the major issues with stream-of-consciousness is comprehension. Poor use of syntax contributes and can make something really great into something hard to figure out. And though poetry sometimes tries to express the "inexpressable", it would also do well to make some things more plain and legible.
