Feeding the Flesh

Feeding the flesh
Is starving the spirit
Empowering the carnal
Sowing to the wind
To reap a whirlwind.

Feeding the Flesh
Is wounding the spirit
Selling your birthright
For a bowl of soup
Which you cannot recoup.

Feeding the Flesh
Building a castle
On the sand
Which will come crashing
In the evil day.

Feeding the Flesh
Is killing your spirit
Mortgaging your future
Defying God
Agreeing with the devil.

Feeding the Flesh
Is corroding your spirit
Weakening your spirit
Polluting the spirit
Digging your grave.

Feeding the Flesh
Signing a contract
Of lose, lose, lose,
Weakness, weakness, weakness
And loss, loss, loss.

Feeding the Flesh
Is simply insanity
Embracing doom
Caressing destruction
Partying with damnation.

Feeding the Flesh
Is kissing the devil
Inviting malnutrition
Spiritual blindness;
Fancying folly.

Feeding the Flesh
Is sowing trouble
Fuelling rubble
Permitting downfall
Hating your spirit.

The choice is yours.
by Fenny West

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. -Matthew 26:41
