Just Say "NO!"


"Just say 'No!'" they say

as though it were not the hardest thing in the world

as though it were an easy task

to deny that for which the body screams

I have no power to refuse what I crave

I am weak and I fall often

into the delights that call my name

yet lie in wait to destroy me as I fall


it is impossible

for forty years I've tried

yet tired, am undone by a thought

no power of my own can save

thank God His power prevails

and heals this deceasing flesh


Just Say "NO!"
