One Single Impression: Struggle


My struggle is not
with the world, it is within
Deeper than within,
not with demons or people
My struggle is not
with them, it is purely me

A contradiction
hereby looms, had I been pure
no trouble would be
Troubles I have, I have sin
Though Jesus has saved
clearly my will vies with His

Pay Devil my dues?
Could becoming a monk help?
Live on the mountain
pray every day all day long?
Come close to the Lord
surely He'd purify me

The church we visited here was on the main drag Dubrovnik, Croatia.  I cannot tell you the name or its exact location without looking at my guide book which is currently out of pocket.
