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.”
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?


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