Click. Click. Click. Click. Click.
It’s the sound that your mouse makes
When you press play on that pornographic video clip
You’ve been browsing the web from the time you got home
Til about 3 or 4 o clock in the morning
Desperately searching for the next hit flick you click

Thinking to yourself

Let me go grab a towel or something / In case I get caught up in masturbation
Or / this website is trippin if they think they’re getting my credit card information
These free 30 second trailers / Just ain’t long enough
Let me fast forward a little bit / I like the part when they get a little rough

It’s interesting

How with over 4.2 million pornographic websites found online
Your lust seems to never get satisfied
The truth / Is that lust
Will take you further / Than you wanted to go
Keep you longer / Than you intended to stay
Cost you more / Than what you were willing to pay
I should know / Because this addiction had a grip on me for almost a decade
Yeah / That’s right
No more secrets / I’ma be transparent today
For years / Porn has ruined my life / Exciting my flesh / But causing a spiritual decay
And if I’m not mistaken / It all started in the middle of 7th grade
But Hey / That’s common though / Right?
Because the largest group of those who view porn online / Are from the ages of 12 to 17.
And I / Was around 13 / So according to this statistic / I was somewhere in between
It’s not that I wanted this addiction / But / Those images
They downloaded from the computer screen
Importing themselves deep down into my carnal being
Infiltrating my thoughts with all sorts of lustful dreams
And now I can’t / Now I can’t / Now I can’t shake / What I have seen
Because every familiar person / Every familiar place / Every familiar thing
Reminds me of another scene

I thought I was the only one

But as Scriptures points out / There’s nothing new under the sun
Over 11 million teens regularly view porn
Some say they do it because they’re lonely or bored / Looking to fulfill a relational void
While others say they do it just for fun
Yet / There is nothing fun / About not being able to fun-ction / In school
You can’t even focus, AND/OR concentrate, because
BUTTS are always on your mind / And I’m not talking about the conjunction
It’s a dysfunction / When all of your time is spent feeding your flesh
As if you were at an all-you-can-eat luncheon
Porn / is your choice of junk food / And you are nothing more than a sexual glutton
Through seduction / You have been ensnared
Into a world wide web / full of moral corruption
And you’ve been blinded / By the deception of the sex industry
Who has packaged its lies on shelves / And have sold them to you with glits and glamour
Porn / Is nothing more than a commercialized production
What you see on the screen / Doesn’t properly depict
What takes place behind the scenes
It’s obscene / The way that men treat women as if they were sexual objects

As if they were less than human beings

In fact / in their eyes / Women aren’t human at all / they’re merely figurines
But don’t let their curvaceous and well-sculpted bodies fool you.
Because many of them / Have undergone countless operations of plastic surgery
And it’s sickening / How the industry is like a pimp / Tied directly to human trafficking
Tricking teenage girls onto sets / That are hardcore / Extreme / Degrading
You can see them gagging while giving oral sex
And crying while filming orgies / But due to their Kodak smiles
You can’t discern their inward screaming

Porn is so unclean

Over 66% of porn stars have herpes / A non-curable disease
And of them, 207 have died prematurely
From AIDS, drugs, suicide and homicide / Since the year 2014
But Scriptures foretell this / That the wages of sin would be death
And since all have sinned
From the porn producers / To the actors / To the addicts
That means that death / Has legal access to us all / Unless

Unless someone saves us

So worthy is the lamb of God / Who was slain for our transgressions
On the cross / There was an exchange
Our sins / For his perfection
He died / So that we may live
A new life / Through the resurrection
Now forgiveness / Is made available / To anyone who would make this confession
That Jesus Christ is Lord / And the author of salvation
So repent / Believe / And accept God’s Grace
Lay aside every weight and sin / That so easily besets you from running this race
Cast down every imagination / And every high thing
That exalts itself against your knowledge of the Higher Being
Bring every thought under captivity / Especially those with sexual activity
Make a covenant with your heart and your eyes / Not to look at anyone lustfully
I know what some of you may be thinking
The struggle is real / and the flesh weak / But the Spirit is willing
So don’t give in to porn / I’m telling you it’s unfulfilling

Lust can only offer you a temporary bliss

But love / If you let it / can offer you so much more than this
You will never find satisfaction by going online
Lusting after someone else’s sister / Mother / Or Daughter
Only Jesus Christ can quench your thirst / You see / He’s the Living Water
Porn is a Killer Fantasy / And in this poem you’ve been forewarned
So the next time you’re tempted to watch it / Choose God Over Porn.
