Our prolific poet Joel Dobony has penned another one, this one about the deceitful dangers of sin that so easily entangles us.
Sin Is a Sugar
By Joel Dobony
Sin is a sugar, sweet as can be,
It’s like nectar, seems to set you free.
But unlike most nectars, it only takes one lick,
Before you find yourself dreadfully sick.
It’s like quick pleasure, it doesn’t take long,
But deep inside, you know that it’s wrong.
Revenge is adrenaline, strength to the bones,
But it soon gives out and will bring forth groans.
For a short time, you will feel revived,
But hold on too long and you won’t have survived.
It may get you through when the times are tough,
But to get you to heaven it won’t be enough.
Jealousy is salt water, it makes you want more,
But unless you give it up it will make you poor.
It makes you despise others, see them as dust,
But what’s really fruitless is your own selfish lust.
You can’t get to heaven by wanting someone’s salvation
If you could wouldn’t it say so in Revelation?
So what makes one rich, and brings forth wealth,
What is the secret to good health?
Love and forgiveness, that’s where the treasure lies,
Be good to people and never despise.
Throw away anger, lay aside strife,
But even this won’t bring eternal life.
There’s only one way, and it isn’t being good,
Though I’m not saying you shouldn’t, cuz you should.
The way is to make Him Savior and Lord,
Do this and be saved from the terror of the sword.
Keep this advice, it will set you free,
And you’ll find yourself happier when you reach eternity.
