I give you an inch, but you take a mile…
I feed your need, but you grumble still!
When I think I have you under control,
You show you are crafty and untrustworthy.
So I must deny you, and hear you not!
For you do not suffer my spirit to grow.
Though you cry for gratification, I will be led by my spirit.
Though you groan in pain, you shall submit to my discipline.
What are you but a bottomless pit of want?
You are the enemy I must endure and daily overcome…
My companion in these lands, necessary for training.
Though you wish to lead, you shall follow.
And as I learn your ways, I shall be made wise.
You, who do not retain wisdom, shall be taught.
Be quiet, be still and be possessed of the Lord.
Though you wrestle continually, I shall have the victory!
