NaPoWriMo~Testify~04.01.2012

Testify!
Speak of your follies and mistakes
the hard road you've had to endure

Testify!
All those terrible things done
as a result of circumstances

No one could blame you
Living godless like you were
who are we to judge?

Testify!
Confession relieves
Admission receives

Forgiveness
though you still must pay the dues demanded
by the law of the land

That free will deal
you know the one...

that points to the probability
we are all living godless lives
yet still some of us
manage to remain human.

Nice first piece for poetry month. Really like the congregational call and response here. Terrific job. Thanks.

I skipped church today to stay home and clean, but I feel like I've had a healing service here, Tash. :)

"manage to remain human" ... It's such a fine line to walk.

This week's words are up, Tash. I hope you'll come write for me again:
