A man in the Bible,
Both empty and full.
There was a time in his life,
When he carried such pull.

He had power beyond,
What normal men do.
It seemed his own interests,
Were what he would pursue.

He challenged most others,
By strength of his hand.
And when they would oppose him,
On the ground they would land.

So full of the Spirit,
The smile of Godís face.
But the lust of a woman,
Surely brought him disgrace.

He forgot that his strength,
Godís Spirit within.
So he posed them a riddle,
That would cause him to sin.

The woman sold him out,
He told her the facts.
So they cut off his dreadlocks,
And his eyes got the ax.

Now put to the grindstone,
Laboring too death.
His strength had come back to him,
Approaching his last breath.

Servant child put his hands,
On those pillars tall.
The Spirit gave his strength back,
All the bad people fall.

Samson certainly had his moments of being filled and being empty. Your words had a nice flow to them.
