I don’t make eye contact with him for your sake
I don’t crack a smile when he whips out his jokes
I don’t come around when he is hereabouts
I would do more if it would give you peace.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I know I have gone through many lovers
Slept on different sheets
Waking up in far-out places in an out-of-towners arms wasn’t anything to me
In my life, nothing was deemed sacred.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Now all you see is the legs of my reputation spread out on pool tables
Groping hands all over me in dark alleys soaked in nighttime rains
You don’t know how much I hate what I had done
You don’t see how much I regret what I became.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx One day, I discovered salvations flight of stairs while I was in tears
The hand of He who loves unconditionally pulled my soul out of the dark filthy mire
Amazing Grace washed and saved another discarded wretch
The cocoon broke, the butterfly became free to fly.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ We all have a past . Don’t we? We have all made mistakes. God gave me a second chance in life. You have to believe other people can change just as you also changed. Therefore , “Do not consider anything unclean that God has declared clean.” Blessed is the man whose sin is covered. Talk to me in the comments section. This is a work of fiction and has nothing to do with anyone I know either living or dead. Thanks for your time.
Stay Safe.

Thank God for His forgiveness, His unfailing and unwavering love for us. We should also learn to forgive others the way God forgives us.
