Oh Hashem give me strength
Where have I gone?
The Yetzer Hara is laughing
But I won’t chuckle along
Oh Hashem I try
they say you are in the field
if so please tell me
why won’t he yield?
Oh Hashem all Rosh Hashana
I tried to pray
but this annoying Yetzer Hara
Why, he wanted to PLAY!!!
Oh Hashem what he did…
he stuck his tongue in my face
put thoughts in my mind
with no stop or trace
Oh Hashem is our 10 days
I keep failing, please let him leave me BE!!!
This nasty little fellow,
should NOT be free!
Oh Hashem I never had such difficulty
for me, with you to talk
I’ve never had to try and push away,
so many thoughts!
So Hashem, PLEASE!!!!
Take this monster away!!!!!!
I have 6 more days left to try again.
Tell me, how will I pray?????September 28, 2014 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #1033563SayIDidIt™Participant

I know how you feel.
Somehow we will overcome him! (but don’t ask me how!)September 28, 2014 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #1033564Letakein GirlParticipant

It’s hard, but every effort counts. We don’t need to be perfect, just keep moving forward.September 29, 2014 1:27 am at 1:27 am #1033567yaakov doeParticipant
Well written, but why “him” – not “her”?September 29, 2014 5:42 am at 5:42 am #1033568cozimjewishMember
It sounds a bit like Country Yossi’s song:
“Yetzer hara you’re a real mean guy,
You drive me crazy and I’ll tell you why,
You’re alwayss makin’ me do things no good,
You never let me do the things I should….
Oy vey, set me free,
Yetzer hara, stop pickin’ on me” 🙂
Cute poem shopping613! Are you planning on being a writer someday?October 1, 2014 4:11 am at 4:11 am #1033569eftachbchinorMember
You’re really inspiring me
When the monster lets you be
Tell him to set me, too, free
And when you pray
These holy next five day(s)
For me, too, give a little sway
To send my sins away
And blessings our way :):):)October 1, 2014 4:47 am at 4:47 am #1033570cozimjewishMember
