It's hard every day

I wish I could end the day as the person who starts the day
In the morning I pray my rosary – I pray for those I’ve wronged
I ask forgiveness for the sins of the day before
I ask God’s help in not committing the same sins in
The day ahead – the new day ahead
I never seem to make it very far into this new day
Before I push myself out of the way
That old me with all the resentments, pride, vanity, lust,
Jealousy, anger, hurts, and self obsession begins to bark
It’s so hard sometimes to keep that dog down
Prayer helps – prayer throughout the day
It’s so hard to become a new man in Christ
I work and pray at it. But it’s hard
