Hand in the Candy Jar

Appearing so inviting
        bright rainbow colors
                delectable shapes
Calling to my taste buds
        solid pieces
                creamy centers
Drawing me to appealing
        nutty caramel
                milk chocolate

All deceptively good
                then craving more
My hand stuck in the candy jar
        greedily grabbing hold
                yearning for new satisfaction

Holding onto sins leaves me
                desiring more

  1. Wow! I am sure that this comes from Pastor John's marvelous message of the rich, young ruler. O, how I want my hands to be emptied of what I hold onto in order that I may recieve the blessings that He has in store for me!

    Thanks for the poetry moment.
