When I Sin - Poem by Jacob Courtney

When I Sin

Father, I fell short today yet again I come
Before You with my sin. I beg of you forgive me
I beg of you father break me from within for
Today I have sinned again. I dropped my cross
And ran from the hill I came home for my
Hammer and nails. Let me not forget my cat
Of nine tails, nor my crown of thorns I got for
You to wear. For it is I who did this to you it
Was I who turned my hand against you it was
I who abandoned you. Father, I dropped my
Cross I ran to hide within a crowd it was me
Who mocked you I must admit I am not proud.
It was I who did all this it was I, I must confess.
The shame I feel lays upon me like a cloud
Overhead with a storm that will not end. It
Clashes all around with lighting striking the
Ground. The wind twist and turns round and
Round for this guilt is confound. I fall to the
Ground and scream aloud, for today I am
Found. My sin was to much to bare to much
To hold within I must confess my sin. Lord,
Forgive me for my sin.
