O soul of mine…



O soul of mine
You are so full of undiscovered beauty
Rusted by my sins
Encrusted by my pride
Constricted by my failings
You gasp for air
You struggle to survive
The hostile climate
I have created for you.

Breathe now.
Breathe deep.
And feel the depth of my repentance.

For this is a blessed month,
A time of mercy
A time of forgiveness,
A time to reflect
And redirect

I have wronged you
Wronged you in the worst way
For I have risked your eternal life
For the transient pleasures
Of the here and now
