That God would set me free.

WITH A CHILDLIKE HOPE AND A HEARTFELT PRAYER

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

It was an offense
but was it intentional? No!
and I’ve begged Her forgiveness

In my haste and exuberance
a sin, unintended
and I prayed to the Lord
that this breach may be mended

Willingly for Me—Easter

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.

 

Type = ArtScans RGB : Gamma = 1.882

 

Christ willingly took upon himself your sins and mine that day.

In order that you and I would never pay what we deserved to pay.

In agony and pain He cried out ,”Father, forgive them, they know not what they do! ”

Mr. Past

by Elizabeth

Mr. Past comes after midnight

bringing with him a bag

a bag full of sadness

why always at night?

why not during the day?

so i could look inside his eyes

say “leave me alone, i don’t need the old stuff”

Releasing skeletons

by Michelle Sherlock

Photo of wooden chinese dragon glazed with gold over doorway at Harrogate Royal Baths Chinese Restaurant

My story I want to tell

Releasing the skeletons from the closet

Sweeping the attic and basement clean

Lifting the carpet and removing the debris

But lips’ seal holds fast
