Sin Prose

Brief dreams of grandeur and importance,

Fade with reality's slightest wind;

Indecision and laziness bind my will,

While voices of failure and wrong haunt every decision.

 

Doubt, fear, ineptness, inferiority, set upon me like a plague;

Imaginary scenarios play out in my mind, producing anger;

Fear of what men can do and have done, I struggle against;

Revenge and hatred knock often on my door.

 

Then I notice the crimson blood forming a puddle at my feet;

I look up to see a grisly scene---an execution;

Primitive and gory, a slow painful death;

I was one of those chosen; the fine for my crime has been paid in full.

 

Bought off the slave block, released from death row;

A murderer and criminal set free---a just Man killed in my place;

Yet a second look recognizes not a man, but God Himself;

It's not fair; I deserve to die, not Him.

Thankfully, God's grace in Christ spares us from the complete impact of our sins.
