The resistance

After Romans 7:7-25

A war rages.
On one side:
what it is
we’re supposed
to do, to believe.
On the other:
what our hearts,
our minds, our souls,
want to do instead.
There’s a sense, 
inborn, of what 
is right. There’s
a sense, inborn,
of what we want
to do instead.
It’s a war
we cannot win
without help.
It’s the war
Of already
not yet.
We cannot win
on our own,
no matter
how great
the desire.
