Pointing All The Guns At Me

It is true That my unbalanced 'ying-yang' exposed me to evil. That I embraced darkness instead of the awaiting light That I chose the garment of stains instead of the plain, spotless apparel. And none of these is done in error, but deliberately and with adequate awareness. But I held on to a rock before completely falling down the mountain and screamed for help before completely drowned in the sea. The danger sign wasn't ambiguous and I had a U-turn before reaching dead end. It was just once that the deed is done and the confession of my lips proves to be the last of such an atrocity. Oh Why has the testament of others shown otherwise? Why has my one mistake created so many advocates? Why has accusing fingers go hand in hand with my first name? Why has the same sin permanently claim me in friendship, and subsequent offenders hide under its lordship? Why am I now the goat in the midst of a flock of sheep? Why has the constant reminder of my misdeed; they forever worship? Why has one slumber bound me in ownership? Why do I have to earn the bitter scholarship of misjudgments? See me now! Justice is exchanged for sentiments and assumptions mistaken for truths. Causing the upholders of morality not caring about important alerts as they point all the guns at me while the actual target transgresses right in their behind..

    WOW, this is really good. I am glad I came to this one so I could see your feelings and I can see you were deeply affected by this in your life. Stay strong. They are the sinners now. You are forgiven if you were sincerely repentant. I truly believe that!

    In the old testament once a year the sins of the Hebrew nation were placed on a goat and the goat was sent out into the desert to die. Fortunate for us Christ came to take away our sins so goats like us no longer need to be sacrificed. Our sins and the sins of those around us have been paid in full. Praise be to our Heavenly Father! This is another acceptional piece.
