Silence

Why does the heart want
what it ought not want?

I know right from wrong.
I make the proper choices.
I turn away from the darkened path.
I walk in what is light
And yet

The heart pulls,
it drags,
it draws me farther,
and farther
toward what it ought not want

I ask God often,
“Take this desire away from me.
I want only what is in the light,
the right,
that which is created from Your might.”
But,
my prayer is met with silence

I don’t hope to fathom
the depths of the Almighty.

Psalm 42 mocks me
as it mocked its writer
“Why art thou cast down, O my soul?”
Where is my answer?
Why won’t this leave me?
Why does my heart want
what it ought not want?

Silence

Somewhere
in there,
sometime
I’ll see
in silence
rests an answer

Edit: Left in Draft status for sixth months…
