Clearing My Throat



Words stuck in my throat
The shame, the sin, the pain
Somehow they keep life out
Keep love out
Keep love in

The words seep out
The shame, the sin, the pain
Somehow the breath of life comes in
Love pours in
Love overflows

There is grace in truth
The freedom, the joy, the peace
God’s mercy abounds
A promise made
A promise kept

Thanks Rosalie! I am a little bit shy about sharing poetry because I don't consider myself a poet. Yet I am finding writing poetry to be a great experience and way to communicate ineffable feelings.
