Strength of Will

Strength of Will

Is wanting something and resiting the urge
For you know it will only cause pain
Fighting back the instinct to splurge
Killing boredom desperately in vane

Lust, objects, things we don’t need
Power over others that just isn’t real
Only creates a greater sense of greed
A soiled soul with means to steal

Strength of Will, a persons resolve
Standing up for what you believe in
Being the one to finally evolve
Beyond obsession, desire, and sin

Not putting up with your own excuses
Not listening to others put downs
Creating your own strength and uses
Being yourself and that astounds

A purpose, an individual, a will
making a plan and following through
Living life is your driving thrill
To yourself you stand ready and true
