No Redemption for Sinners

Took a dip in the river,
Washed up clean and turned a new page,
Found a new purpose,
Thought I would give me redemption,
But you were always a good shot,
Always shot to kill,
evaded the layers of kevlar,
Went for skin, grazed an artery,
And now you got me bleeding.

Thought I would get away with an apology,
But I guess it wasn’t enough, so now we even,
Thought I would make amends,
But that’s not how this story ends,
So I’m dropping the commiserations,
I finally know how you felt,
Know through my body and veins,
Slowly as I fade away, I know how you felt,
It’s the last thing I get to do.

  1. Lord, this very disturbing. Are you OK? God is always there with you. There is always redemption, grace, mercy, unfailing love.
