Letting Go of the Past

None of us are perfect,
We all have sinned some how.
We have skeletons in our closets,
That we pray won't come out now.

We try to hide our failures,
Behind good works and deeds.
But Jesus knows the truth,
And He knows just what we need.

Call upon the Savior,
He'll wash away your sins.
Your past will be forgotten,
And new life will dwell within.

Quote: "Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future."
For Juli-Michelle's "Write with your heart -12 lines" contest

    So true. God knows our weaknesses that's why there's forgiveness. Thanks for your comment on my poem.

    Kim, I rated this a 7, should be a 10. This is so true. Jesus will forgive us for our sins so we may move on with a clean slate indeed and carry him withinn our hearts. Beautiful poetry here. Love,Gail
