Little Prisons

Little prisons await
the lustful soul.
Bars of selfishness and pride
create dungeons of icy cold.

Prisons of shame and jealousy
fill the heart with utter despair.
Bars that separate from God
and those that really care.

Stand back! While the doors
are tightly closed,
sealing away your life,
to wither as a dying rose.

Beware of those little prisons
that trap the lustful soul.
Keep yourself free from sin,
thru faith in the Christ of old.
