Many temptations

Life is full of temptations;
You will be tempted
To do things that are wrong;
Tempted to sleep
When you should be up
And active;
Tempted to take the path
If idleness;
You will be tempted
To take what you did not keep;
Tempted to reap
Where you did not sow;
You will be tempted
To speak
When you should be quiet;
Tempted to call people’s names;
Tempted to eat
What you should abstain from.
You will be tempted and tempted;
You will be tempted
To go for earthly things
And shun heavenly things.
But try the best you can
Not to fall into temptation.
