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
