Do we succumb
when the charmers and the tempters come to call?
Sniffing round our doors,
peddling their wares – fruits for restless hearts.
Promises of baubles
and bright lights,
impassioned days and torrid nights?
Do we resist?
Do we see them for what they really are?
Do we cast the devils behind us without a care?
Or do we succumb and
Seize the day?
Jump headlong in?
All our sins laid bare.
