Sins of a sinner defeated

I am not perfect
I am guilty
vanity, greed,lust,jealousy
explicit and manic behavior
welcoming anyone and anything into my body
my temple
allowing myself to be ravaged
rebelling against myself
impure thoughts
carnal actions
my being becoming wicked and tainted
my soul was set ablaze by sin
but the fire set about an abundance of light
shinning through...rays of clear sight and sanity
I could see the path of goodness
that I didnt have to hide myself or be ashamed
just when the the fire was extinguished
and only ashes remain
a pheonix arose
taking me on a journey
higher than I've ever been 
and on the wings of the pheonix I to am born again
exonerated and forgiven

    A very nice message here, just because you've led a life of sin doesn't mean you can't shake off the chains of that old life and live free of sin -He can do that. I saw the Phoenix as our Lord and Savior, not sure if that's where you were going with it, but that's how I read this beautiful and inspiring poem. MC
