Skirmish of Sins (Revisited)


I’ve battled
Satan.

He has invaded my slumber
and pursued my days.

With yesterday still ringing
in my ears,
I’m bruised. 

Not beaten. 

Never beaten.

Sinner or saint?  
Who should judge? 

I’ve slain
today’s
temptations. 

Tomorrow. 

Tomorrow yields
yet
another skirmish
of sins.

people understood what I was trying to say. This is a reworked 
version of that first piece. I hope you enjoy.  <3
