Poem: The Beast

Check me out on Facebook and Twitter, looking forward to meeting you, and if you have any poems you’ve written yourself please share below. I read every comment, and will be sure to give some positive critiques.

Romans 7:18-20

18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. 19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. 20 But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

It screams “I want more!  Feed me!”

This animal is always hungry

How can I rid myself of the beast within me?

Holy Spirit, I only want you, yet I continue to deal with this darkness

It laughs at me every time I fail.  It haunts my nights when I’m alone, when I’m with others, when I worship, when I sing praises to You

It reminds me of my past, of my yesterdays

Father, remove this thorn and sooth my pain, deliver me from this oppression.

I need Your grace to nail it on the cross every day

I need to die so You can live

My ego, my will, its agenda, its cravings, I give to you

Have Your way Lord, my King, I submit to Your purpose
