November 29-30, 2019




despair, dark and heavy

my cloak drags me down

it pulls me away from life

holds me along the path

my own thirty pieces pave

whether good intent or evil

my end would be the same


I die

beneath the incredible weight

of sin


comfort, bright and easy

God has raised me up

leads me to abundant life

guides me along the path

His own sacrifice has made

for no other cause but love

my end has been redeemed


I live

upon the incredible love

of God


Written for my friend Nicole, among many others.

God's mercy so vastly overwhelms our sin that we

have no need to fear Him for anything we've done.
