Refocusing From Temptation

Oh temptation
The more I try to resist you
The more you seem to persist
Making the fight look so tough

Oh temptation
You started like a thought
Now you are so overwhelming
Pushing me so I can fall.

Oh temptation
You got my attentions
Now you want my emotions
So I can give you some actions.

Oh temptation
You cannot overcome me
I’m refocusing my thoughts
Far, far away from you.


*This poem was inspired by Pastor Rick Warren’s Daily Devotional of 7/7/2020, entitled, Instead of Resisting Temptations, Refocus.
