    if u haven't read part 1, u may want to, to understand this poem a little better...enjoy!

    Her minds wanders back
    To that day at the church
    She sits so relaxed
    Unlike when at church
    She remembers the pain
    Being lifted from her
    And remembers the gain
    Of the love inside her
    The time she lifted
    Her face up to the sky
    Feeling uplifted
    Of love from Jesus Christ
    She needed his blood
    To be shed upon her
    To redeem her blood
    And make it so pure

    She sat in that church
    Thinking she was unworthy
    To receive God’s concern
    Because He is so worthy
    But now she knows
    He loves her all the same
    Even though he knows
    She killed out of his name
    On that night of the murder
    Holding the gun so tight
    The murder of her father
    Killing him with her might
    For battering her mother
    In twenty years of pain
    Agonizing her brothers
    Leaving her almost insane

    Now she sits in a cell
    Not scared or alarmed
    But peaceful in her shell
    With the love of God’s charm
    She sheds tears again
    But this time out of joy
    No more great pain
    She feels that no more
    She’s sixty five years old
    Sitting in that cell
    In some ways she’s not old
    But her body seems to fail
    She sits reading her bible
    And remembering that church
    As she received a revival
    Leaving her so unhurt

    God is steadily looking
    Down from heaven upon her
    He sees her tired look and
    Sheds his grace on her
    By taking her lived life
    And bringing her to heaven
    He took away her strife
    Giving her joy with brethren
    Together they sang songs
    Praising God’s works
    She was the loudest one
    Crying out of no hurt
    She remember her words
    That day in the church
    She said, “Wash me, hold me
    Take me, and cleanse me
    Teach me lord please
    To be like you, worthy
    Lifetime I may have
    Locked inside a cell
    But after this I shall die
    Joyful in heavens wealth…"



    :eek:
    …from unworthy to worthy…
