A Poem by GoldenOne

Religious poem describing guilt and restoration.

I'm sorry.
I'm embarrassed to say it again;
like the guilty child who is torn between
telling the truth and seeing your face
or knowing the truth and hiding his own.

But the idea of staying alone scares me
more than any punishment you could inflict;
except possibly the thought of disappointing you.
So I come, with my failures, my battle scars,
and my tangled chains, asking for hope.

Wrap me up in your big dad arms.
Tell me one more time that I am free.
Claim me one more time as your own.
and knock me to my knees with your grace.

Remind me tonight, tomorrow, next week, and for all eternity
that who I am is not bound up in
who I date, where I go, or how I think.
I am your own girl,
I am bought with a price,
I am redeemed,
I am whole,
and I am loved.

I am walking down the aisle of my own personal history,
dressed in crisp lace, adorned in white blossoms,
with the vision of your sweet, enduring face in front of me,
and I love you.

touching sincere write.

This one touched me a lot, maybe because i can relate to this, because when i read this i felt some kind of familiar feeling i get. Maybe it's just God. It's a great write though, it flowed very smoothly and it was a free verse too, which i liked. I think my favorite part would be the beginning. The ending though, kind of made me lose you there, tbh. But still GREAT.
