~ Walls of Flesh ~
by Shannon Rohn

Life isn’t just what is seen in a pretty picture,
But the secrets buried from within the walls of our flesh, and hidden deep inside,
Intellectually we stand tall, body held strong by the back bone of our pride,
While we battle the constant thoughts of the conscious mind,
Unable to see the whole picture because we are blind.

What if we crossed the wrong bridge, or took the wrong street,
Should we prepare ourselves for lies & deceit?
Instead of what makes our heart beat?

Trying to look prettier everyday, but still perfect in God’s eyes,
Inside we still burn with secrets and lies,
Still trying to control in their heart what lives or dies,
How do you deal with those whose mind has taken over their lives?,
Behind the Walls of Flesh is where they hide.
