FORGIVE ME

For my disobedience that displeases Your heart… …I apologize; as well as for my stubbornness of arrogance-dart Showing my defiance against Your plans, always right from the start… Lord, forgive me of my sins; from Your design I did depart. For my disloyalty that dishonors Your name… …I apologize; along my compromise with worldly vanity-game Manifesting my lack of faith in Your might’s flame… Lord, forgive me of my iniquities; I tainted Your holy fame. For my dishonesty that denounces Your ministry-goal… …I apologize; confessing my hypocrisy in my steward-role Revealing my shallow commitment against devotion pole… Lord, forgive me of my transgressions; cleanse and purge my soul. For my discontentment that diminishes Your work’s cost… …I apologize, admitting my ingratitude toward Your blessings’ post Expressing my greed and selfishness as one who’s spiritually lost… Lord, forgive me of my guilt; You deserve my praise-worship’s utmost.
April 29, 2019 *Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. 2nd place, "APOLOGY" Poetry Contest Sponsored by Line Gauthier; judged on 4/30/2019.
