I Don’t Need It Anymore

Jealousy,
Vanity,
Bigotry,
Infidelity.

Lying,
Cheating,
Stealing,
Bingeing.

Spiteful,
Lustful,
Neglectful,
Deceitful.

Malice,
Avarice,
Prejudice,
Cowardice.

Laziness,
Selfishness,
Drunkeness,
Lawlessness.

I’ve had enough,
To last me a lifetime!

All those old vices,
Have served their purposes.

They’ve inflicted much pain
And left permanent scars.

They’ve opened my eyes,
And seared my brain.

I’ve learned my lesson,
I’m ready to repent.

Oh Jesus, please bless my heart,
And make it new.
