Divided into six humanly parts; a sonnet of admitted sin.
<u>The realization of my shortcomings</u>
I don't want to escape my destiny
But lusts often gain control of me
Promised much, I'd give my soul
Yet still I waste time in this hole...
<u>My secret corner of the universe</u>
I like it here, where the air is moist
Action and romance and adventure taken hoist
Dressed up with dreamy lights, mistletoe
Shooting stars <B><U>MY ESCAPE</U></B> and cupids' arrows
Virtual reality posing what's revolting, sickening
Throwing my life away on a mere whim
All through this truth, my mind holds fast
To all it's lies designed to last
My head is filled <B><U>IS HERE</B></U> with tales of fun
Worldly fantasies instead of Word from above...
<u>But yet... hope?</u>
A golden light of truth prevails
Sparkling diamond with a promise to cure my ails
But I block it out, sinking into a pit of destitute
Jesus' sacrifice lain under my shoes...
<u>Reasoning again. Looking for righteousness inside a lie.</u>
It hardly seems like it's a sin
But it's written: don't waste your time on frivolous things
The days are evil, but inside my head
Dreaming, morphing, fantasizing, being led...
<u>Still... I know there's something wrong.</u>
Selfish thoughts reliving first loves
Pure, undefiled worship flies away like the doves,
That Jesus released but I too am captive here
Although my escape, I'm not living in fear,
Like I ought to, of what's righteous and true
Am I the only one -- does this sound like you?
<u>There's always a way out.</u>
Your imagination is a comfort, a magical place
But have the 'mind of Christ' don't make my mistake
The world is <B><U>TRUE ESCAPE</B></U> a pit of slithering snakes
But hiding inside yourself is no escape
You must venture out with truth from above...
Fix ALL your <U><B>IS NEAR</U></B> thoughts on heaven -
don't trip, don't fall
don't stumble, don't crawl
There's just one thing that can save you.
The real deal
The all in all...
