My Secret

Each night
i put my hands together 
confessing the days mistakes
and to wipe the slate clean
its by my faith you say im forgiven
but still...
i continue to be a sinning machine

I keep you locked up deep inside
so i dont give myself away
to blend in
i hide you from everyone i know
they have no clue i pray
but why am i afraid to show my true self
forced into playing their games
is it because of the ridicule that would follow
would they even call me names?

its amazing
the transformation that takes hold
when my sinners "gameface" goes on
the lying and profanity gently flows
from the river of my mouth
but deep down
it's really just a con
i try hard to do and say the right things
so you wont be disapointed in me
but its so difficult for me to say " Darn-it "
rather than another word i could pick
from my vocabulary!
but thats what makes you all loving and true
you understand that we are not without sin
your love for mankind has always been there
we just have to let you in

Each night
i put my hands together
and ask for the courage
to unlock you
from a place deep within
each night

    Paul said Oh! Wretched man that I am..That that I want to do I do not and that I do not want to do I do..Ageless agony that you have expressed...Poor Peter and as the cock crowed the third time Peter went out and wept..However, each victory that we win we become stronger..Within each man lies two dogs..the one that you feed the most is the one that grows the most...I really enjoyed the write for the humaness that it expresses...Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work.. favsSara

    Take care, keep striving to be a better person!! I think that is all we can do after we have prayed and studied.

    We all struggle with the inner emotions you describe so well. Prayer and faith, strength will come. Excellent write.

    Kurt this is such an awesome write.. Affirmation that God knows our deepest fears, acknowledging that and taking steps to want to change will bring it about.. You just took the first step. It is already in motion.. Thank you for your comment on my piece as well bb Wilma
