The Flesh

I really wanted to tell them
I wanted to publicly confess
But then ego overwhelmed
Instead, I gave into flesh

Her shape was quite compelling
Really put my faith to test
Turned my head, closed eyes
Turned again, gave into flesh

Noticed they had more than I
Discrepancy should be addressed
I deserve more I work harder
Such is the wisdom of the flesh

He offended first I stated
Until revenge, there is no rest
I know I should forgive
But I answer to the flesh

I claim Christ as King
Claim that I am truly blessed
But when I have to choose
I take comfort in my flesh

Galatians 5:16 Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh
