Sustain in me a willing spirit.

I've asked for the joy
so many times,

But it's only gone when
the spirit is unwilling
and I exit salvation to
my own shame,
and pain.
What is this indulgence in degradation? Why must I not delight in the fruits of cleanliness, honest study of truth and its symbiotic counterpart; love, from which it will not be prised?
So for the sake of the joy of walking in salvific truth and with the endless reserves of the love with which I was bought and freed, grant in me a willing and generous spirit that my steps may bring you joy.

A poetic reflection on Psalm 51:12 written 30/05/12. Please listen to my spoken word and musical interpretation: (also please excuse the poor timing on the guitars at points)
