Ladies We Are Fools {A Poem}

Man with Laptop

Ladies we are fools

when we think

“My husband would never do that.”

As if he’s above David

the man after God’s own heart

whose eyes lingered over Bathsheba

as he lusted from his rooftop.

Ladies we are fools

when we don’t believe

our son would be

viewing porn

with friends or alone

unsatiated, now addicted

surfing the net on his phone.

Ladies we are fools

when we withhold sex

thinking we have control

when at his fingertips

is a whole other world

where he can indulge

without needing our approval.

Ladies we are fools

when we don’t daily pray

for their hearts not to stray

that God keep them strong

to turn the head or walk away

and if they should fail

to help us extend grace and let the cross prevail.
