"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

The unholy urge to commit a sin,

To disobey and disregard the Word;

An alluring desire in your heart stirred,

Hoping an unsettled soul it shall win.


Spiritual war inside will begin.

Gone your beliefs, seemingly undettered,

And once clear, definite morals now blurred,

The cost of losing this battle within.


Fight the yearnings that decimate your will

And eventually decay your soul.

Do not allow the wickedness to stroll,

Unhindered by opposition now still.


Look to God for the power to prevail,

And against the devil you never fail.

Wow! I love the transition from 'alluring desire' 'to unsettled soul.' I think your word order is particularly fascinating and makes it even more of an interesting read!
