For the first time I took the chance
to leave my past mistakes behind
when the devil asked me to dance
and I defiantly declined.
I could not risk the burn again
now that I'm aware of their guise
and I'm not afraid of the pain;
only those vices I despise.
I did feel a brief temptation
in the darkest hour of night
but temporary elation
got bettered by all that is right.
I'm sure that I'll still face such tests
and I'll have other demons to face
but they will stay unwelcome guests
in my morality's silent grace.
