    Father, Oh, Father can you hear me
    I come to you on bended knee
    I need you to come and see about me
    Master, Saviour, I truly need thee

    I know in the past I committed myself to you
    And then turn around and failed to give you your due
    Sinning, and grinning and pretending I wasn't new
    Walking around in a daze as if I didn't have a clue

    In my heart I am filled with conviction
    Yet I keep sinning like it is my devotion
    Wearing my disgrace like it is a fragrant lotion
    But dear Father I am so sick of this commotion

    God I can't live like this anymore
    The waves are tearing up my shore
    I am distressed down to ny very core
    I refuse to continue to be Satan's whore

    I realize that my decisions are defining me
    And what I am portraying is not what I want to be
    I want to be the reflection of the ideal you see
    So on bended knee Lord I ask that you forgive me

    Peace & blessings poet...

    I was moved by the pure honesty of this piece. Being able to say his name amongst others is one thing. Proclaiming his goodness & lifting God up is another thing but admitting amongst others judging you that you are human and need forgiveness well... now THAT is an attribute worthy of lots of (((((((((((((hugs))))))))))) well at least from me LOL I understand what it is like to come to HIM broken and beaten so that he can restore in you a clean heart. And I think this was a beautiful representation of repentence. I wish you nothing BUT the best :) :grouphug:
