As Simple as Forgiveness

Posted on April 11, 2008

The sting of words,
The pain of strife,
A taste of death,
That spark of life.

The beast within,
The wolves without.
A heart of sin?
That drives us out.

The love of God,
The dreadful deed,
A God of peace,
That met our need.

With grateful heart,
Forgiveness felt,
When at Christ’s feet,
This sinner knelt.

  2. Good work there, possum!

  3. Brief and lovely. The first two lines of the second stanza captured me, I think, with their epic suggestion of being caught between a rock and a hard place. "The beast within, The wolves without." It hurts to think about. But you round out nicely with a saving message. Beautiful.

  4. This one is truly wondrous! Awesome first stanza…
