once again i prove my mortality

how is it that i can do over and over and over

what God must not desire

i am embarrassed



and repentant (for now)

but time has proved

over and over and over

that this curse is greater than i


or is it that i seek to be o'erwhelmed

by that which i desire

a frantic change of thought

to preserve an innocence that never was


"For all have sinned and fallen short

of the glory of God"


"But the gift of God is eternal life

in Christ Jesus our Lord!"


so then

it is i that sin

and my mind allows it

but i desire the greater thing




may His forgiveness and love

claim even me
