My desires made me callous.
Their bare bodies I long to see.
Like a thirsty athlete Desires water, my cravings for Porn knew no bounds.
No fear of God, no thoughts of repercussions.
To satisfy my urge my heart desires.
Hunger pangs can’t describe the urge.
Think twice my friend a calm voice speaks.
That could be your mother
That could be your sister.
What is good for the Goose, is good for the Gander.
Some are exploited, some have no hope.
See them in this light, the Father loves us all.
It quickly dawned on me how selfish I have been.
God’s fear I need, his light I seek.
Make the right Choice, whenever the urge comes.
The choice you make will make your day.
