Neglecting the Covenant

Have we not all the same Father,
Related all to one Brother;
All created by the same God,
To whom we do honor and laud.

So why are we so unfaithful,
We cheat and are so deceitful;
Having dishonor and disgrace,
Cannot look someone in the face.

We hope to honor and obey,
Promising not to go astray;
But finding ourselves instead,
With another one in the bed.

A disgusting thing for to find,
That just might make you lose your mind;
The love for someone you possessed,
Has been so lustfully obsessed.

They say they have been working late,
Negotiations could not wait,
Keeping them up talking all night,
Then coming home at morning light.

Lust of the flesh is slavery,
And filled with infidelity;
Making you sexually arouse,
That causes you to break your vows.

Your flesh and spirit are not yours,
To give another He implores;
Only to whom He has given,
Will there be blessings from Heaven.
