Poetry Sunday~ Double Dose~

For Him
***
I walk a straight and narrow path
this line I walk alone.
No one to hinder the road I’m on
yet nothing is set in stone.
*
I strive to be the woman that He
has cast out on the shore.
The one He made the perfect way
Until I yearned for more.
*
Something was swept away from me
that keeps me tied and bound
to this earthly crime for mercy’s sake
My soul to never be found.
*
I’m on my knees; arms are raised
I beg for you to hear
Shower me in your grace
to make it all come clear.
***
***I am Forgiven***
***
Will He still love me
when all is said and done?
the blood of my sin drips
as I walk on sandy
shores leaving footprints
on souls .
I watch as they wash away
with the tide and wonder
will He still love me when
He sees me bare? I’m naked
running to Him yet I turn away
as my shame keeps me from ever
grasping the true love.
I hear the whisper; then the
resounding echo, "You are
forgiven!"
I turn to him as my wet tendrils cling
to my face; I run for him. He is my love
My one and only true love who knows
all that I am and ever will be.
Will he wash away my sin?
He already has.
I am forgiven!
