The world spins round in my head,

I just want to go back to my bed,

I just want to eat and sleep,

Perhaps this time I have waded in too deep.

I am trying out Islam,

Tiered of all the hymns and psalms,

The hypocrisy of the church and the sin,

Has led me to want to just take my life fresh and rebegin,

But nobody told me of fasting in the daylight hours,

This temptation is so great I can taste its powers,

I am tempted to not get up at all,

Once more let my mind to sin's armies fall.

But I will soldier on,

Knowing to divert from the path would just be wrong,

Knowing that somehow I am not going on a spiritual hearse,

Knowing that without God it would be a lot worse.
