…the parched land shall become a pool, and the thirsty lands springs of water…(Isaiah 35:7)

The Beast Within Me

By Rex Goode


A poem by Del (used with permission)

A fleeting glimpse of shapely flesh
Sets my blood to boil.
Why was it needful to wire me thus;
That I suffer this curs’ed turmoil?

The flirts and smiles of feminine wiles
Insults my struggling will.
How shall I be free of such control,
And this beast within me kill?

O Lord, how can I return to thee,
When this lust within me burns?
My spirit calls to thee for peace,
While the body for embraces yearns!

O Lord, forgive for habits past
Which brought me to this turn.
Make me, nay, make thee the master of my soul,
And grant me faith to learn
