Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Temptation

Temptation is addictive
Draws you in enticingly
The carrot less the stick at play
Where will might fail to be

Resolving to be better
To not succumb; be strong
Less the allure; the gathering
The coax but things go wrong

And then it comes a-hankering
Appeal; forbidden bait
Temptation; irresistible
You can’t!  You just can’t wait!
