You will be tempted

You will be tempted;
You will face many
Temptations
in life;
True or false?
Already, you face many
Temptations;
You will face many more.
They will come knocking
On your door,
To let you in.

You will be tempted
To believe you are
Not good enough;
Many are tempted
To believe so.
Don’t fall into that temptation.
You are good enough;
You are better than
You think;
You are better than
Many people whom you
Think are better
Than you.

You will be tempted
To try to reap
Where you did not sow;
Do not fall into that
Temptation.
It is a dangerous thing
To do.
Only reap
From your farm.
Don’t reap where
You did not sow.

You will be tempted
To fall into
Base behaviour;
Do not give in to such
Temptation.
This temptation
Can be very strong;
And you think
You cannot resist.
You better resist
It is better for you.

You will be tempted
To say what
You should not say;
Don’t fall into that
Temptation;
You cannot retract
What you have said.
And words can build,
And can also destroy.
One wrong word
Can destroy a nation.

The temptations that
can come your way
Cannot be counted;
They are on all sides;
Do not fall into those
Temptations.
They are the highway
To sin, crime, destruction
Failure.
Avoid them to pave
Your way to success;
To fall into them
Is to walk straight
Into failure.
