Forgiveness is Essential Poem in honor of National Poetry Month

No matter what the 
circumstance we all 
must ask for another 
chance. Even if what we 
have done seems small
or not as bad as other 
things seen or heard about. 
No sin makes God glad.
There is no guide or color
code no different degrees
with Him- right is right
wrong is wrong sin is
simply sin. No one else
has qualified to erase
it from themselves so
He sent Jesus Christ
to sacrifice and 
reconcile us to Himself. 
The only one who
can stand in. an
advocate on our behalf.
Who says yes Father
they did sin but I died
to liberate man. To the
lowest region of hell, and
then to heavens highest
realm. Jesus came died
rose again with all
power in His hand. Tested
tempted and rejected still
He did not fail, how many
will benefit and not go down
to hell? All those who see
then understand forgiveness
is essential to be right with
God and man.

It's in My Blood in honor of National Poetry Month

Pumping, coursing, flowing through my veins. 
Molten lava soon ashes remain. 
Listless restless causing hidden pain.
Destiny darkened driving me insane. 
Freely given redemption in His name. 
Red and priceless to free me from my shame. 
Quick so easy love and forgiveness came. 
Self worth and value guilt no longer maim. 
If it was another's mistake no more need to place blame. 
Faceless killer no court shall arraign.
Now white as snow no longer sin stained. 
HIV/AIDS diagnosis my health chart may still proclaim
But it's in my blood 
I'm bought with love
I don't have to live the same. 

This poem is written from the perspective of Rosalyn from the novel It's in My Blood.
Book 2 in the Wholeness series available in paperback and all major eBookstores.
