Short Poem (Struggle)

O filthy beast within me

Your presence has no place here

An island of purity afar off I see

A purity known and unknown, still not near

How can it be that this beast dwells within me

Like an old oak tree with roots grown deep in my heart

But this wicked flesh

O filthy beast within me, O animal of lust


written by Jerome Danner
