A Broken Heart Suffices - Poem by Alem Hailu Gabre Kristos

When a
Remorseful convert,
Astray that had gone far
Blemishing his /her soul
With sin's tar,
Puts a broken heart
On the altar,
By far,
S/he could enjoy
God's grace
Or even
Win a higher place
In His face
Than a devotee,
Taking pride
In his/her deed,
Who oft mount
A spiritual war
Devil's way to bar.

It is with
A broken heart
The culprit
Hanged by the right
Of Jesus Christ
Got to Eden First
Though Adam, Moses,
Abraham, Job
And others were
Top on the short list.

It is by the virtue of
Their determination
Sinful ways to quit
Zacchaeus and
Mary Magdalene
Were seen fit
Than the hypocrite!

It is this line
From genesis
To revelation
God labours to bring
To our attention!
So with conviction
Let us pray for
Our soul's resurrection.

Of course no doubt
Our devotion could buttress
Our chance to enjoy
His mercifulness! //
