To The Old Man

by Winnifred Eze

On my own, I can never defeat thee
For with my flesh, you team up against me.
So, I humbly make my plea known to Mercy
Who brings my flesh subject to the Spirit.

And when thou arise to whisper thy lies,
And pull me to the path where I lose the fight,
Then Mercy will arise to rescue me
And save me from thy terrible grip.
