A permanent struggle

How easy is it for you
To do what you know
Is right?
How easy is it for you
To stick to
What you know is
right?
When temptation’s hand
Is being stretched
To you,
How easy is it to resist?
Isn’t it so hard
To be pure in a world
That is full of sinners?
We live in a world of sin,
Where great is anyone
Who lives above sin;
And scarce, are such
To find;
Yet, we must not throw in
the towel in our struggle;
We must continue
To climb to the top
Of the ladder of purity;
Where sainthood dwells;
And each time we fall,
As many times we will do;
Many times we must get up,
Dust ourselves
And continue;
It is a permanent struggle.

Straight or crooked lines?

Sometimes in life,
One thing goes wrong,
To fix another one;
A thing may go right,
But spoil another one;
Someone’s misfortune may be
Another one’s fortune;
The cause of tears for some,
May be the cause of laughter
For others;
So while you are enjoying,
Know some maybe mourning;
That is the complexity of
What we call our world;
Some lines are straight,
Some lines are zigzag
You may call them crooked.
But all are lines;
And you’re confused
Which of them to take;
The straight or crooked;
But straight, I must say;
For, though tempting may be
The crooked,
It’s the one that leads
Straight to destruction;
Go straight;
Go the straight way;
That is the one that leads
To lasting success.
