the meddles he makes, the losses he gets


twitches of flesh, i grapple.

this skin, this worldly i mean.

the enemy grips me, i resist.


twice and thrice, and more,

he induces craving.

i evade him, & his fast-food.


i’m not confined in my past.

sheltered, i breathe a whole disposition of truth.

rising by conviction, flying and going;


there are games that i forsake and

dispel the compromises.

the enemy chases.


prying, he’s prying on me but

i’m clever, i’m shrewd.

my Lord and i outsmarted the beast!
