Can you forgive me

Forgive all my attempts
To make you a magician
Coming to you in dozens of time 
Like a musician and an artisan
At times like a comedian.
A true art of chameleon in religion clothing
Approaching you only for assistance
Never making a remittance but
always giving you the remnant
Even on that i failed to ruminate
But act like a ruminant
I used every instrument of the 
mathematician (that on tithe)
Neglecting all your epistles to the 
Corinthians, Ephesians, 
Philippians, Colossians.
Especially, the one to the Thessalonians.
I omitted the acts of the Apostles
I did not take after the act of Joseph of Arimathea.
These portray the true heart of a politician 
and not a Christian. 
Forgiveness is a decision
Forgive and forget Is a household song
How do i deal with the incisions?
To be safe from infections and perversions
That leads to perdition without neglecting my 
friends affection and persuasion 
That is the nub of this notion
Only by your injunctions and inscriptions
It may be by information for reformation
I can make the right corrections
I must reach perfection
O Lord can you still forgive me?

    Fine prayer. The Lord God always forgive us our sins, nomatter the degree of the sin. Jesus has paid for all our sins. Fasoyo, stopping to read your works this evening is a blessing. I love your work. Thanks for your comment on my poem- WAR. It will end when we all love ourselves and totally remove ' I' from our dreams and replaced it with we, you, us. God will help us to love ourselves. Pastor Emmanuel.

    Asking for forgiveness is such a cleansing thing to do; and recognizing our weaknesses is so important also. You've written a beautiful poem Fisayo and I want to thank you for your sweet visit recently. Love, Elizabeth
