One Sentence - Poem by Andrew Hinton

I remember all the times I've tried to weep,
And the fitful nights I've found no sleep.
I remember feeling dead inside this shell,
Emotions ringing like a muted bell.

But now after a single sentence,
I feel free from years of penance.

Now hope comes and settles on the surface of my heart.
I wish that a new time in my life it would help to start.
That my anxious hands would cease to shake,
And excuses for idleness I would not make.
That the will of God would become my fire,
And that I'd hold the hand of one I desire.
May I rely on the strength You lend,
And run this race until the end.
