Temptations surround me. They cloud my mind, they cause greed. From money to advertisements, temptations surround me. Temptations surround me. They make me selfish, they blind me. From wasting time and causing procrastination, temptations surround me. Temptations surround me. They cause cravings and hunger. From rich milk chocolate to that juicy cheeseburger, temptations surround me. Temptations surround me. They give false hope, they promote empty promises. From bets and swears, temptations surround me. But I can look past these temptations that surround me. I remind myself of my morals, I remind myself of my faith. I avoid these temptations that destroy character.
