One of life's greatest challanges is to resist temptation. So many can't resist the Devil's Call.


If you think

About being untrue

Your soul will shrink

You will be blue.

 

Don't  take that step

You have to stall

For many have wept

From the Devil's call.

 

The Devils call

Can be so cruel

You won't stand tall

You won't be true .

 

Through the years

The Devil's call

Caused many tears

And sunk them all.

 

Prince and pauper

Rich and poor

It's been the stopper

That slammed life's door.

 

Beware that call

Resist temptation

There's no gain at all

Just damnation.

I think the only way to resist "the devil's call" is to sell your soul to a different Master.
