‘For this flesh is weak’

For this flesh is weak,
but our mind is strong.
The libido is motivated;
whether right or wrong.

If we still yearn to sew
when temptation calls;
the constitution is weak
and our resistance falls.

An eleventh hour bargain
is struck to make a deal.
It's never about morality;
only about how one feels.

To overcome pangs of lust;
conscience can triumph will.
We crave conquests of youth
but old age is a sobering pill.
