Less Addiction

Less psychology more cure of souls.
Less reassurance more comfort.
Less there there and more keep warring!
Less look forward and more I have your back
Less wishing and more praying.
Such things the Christian needs from another.
To wake us from our illusions.
To guard us against the false dreams that visit.
Where the senses dull and desires mutate.
Desires for beautiful things flatten.
While desires for evil things fatten.
We see food – the beautiful gift
has become the complicated gift.
Beautiful and desired. This far – goodness.
In mutation, we forget to desire the food
mutation flowing
we desire the excess of food.
Sex is little different.
Desiring the excess and not the beautiful thing itself.
We desire to eat immediately after eating.
Increasing in frequency and quantity.

This is addiction.

Driving, subdueing and imprisoning.
Lusts of the eyes.
What can be seen; it is now tasted
and then must be seen and tasted again.
No true satisfaction – no satiation of appetite.
Appetites that may have decency in them
but which will not respond as intended.
The appetite misshapen, malfunctions.
Like the bucket
It should given time of filling be found full
but with many exits, cannot be.
It is found wanting.
Desiring.
Without hope of satiation.
A desolate state,
a desolate relationship with the things of this life
Food, sex and power.
Less psychology more cure of souls.
Less reassurance more comfort.
Less there there and more keep warring!
Less look forward and more I have your back
Less wishing and more praying.
