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.
