Forgiveness

Trapped in a moment
Of yesterdays’ regret
An endless torment
Never able to forget

Always to constantly remind
Myself of the ever present scars
Knowing I will never find
Heaven or the stars

Sinking ever lower
In each memory recalled
Moments of joy become fewer
As I loose sight of the lord

Seeking the Creators forgiveness
Seems pointless to begin
When I know to find newness
I have to find it within

That part of my being
That is the Creators alone to see
And expose all of my sin
To have the lord set me free

I forgive myself now
And can see how I fell
I thank the Creator for showing me how
To climb back out of hell

Artist's Description

It took me years to realise that forgiveness has to come from within.
