Turn Your Eyes Away

Turn your eyes away
from temptation
do not linger where
it crouches ready
waiting to capture
you and pull you into
it’s lair of Darkness

What are your temptations
those things that
move you toward
the Dark
go not where you
will be tempted
to gamble, drink
lust gossip, lie

Censor what you read
movies you watch
people who would lead
you astray
rather focus your thoughts
words, actions on that
which is pure, uplifting
sacred

Call to the Lord
to guide you, protect
you from
those who will rob
your soul

Our Lord is merciful
offering His abundant love
thank you, God
for our many blessings
even in our times of woe
