I wrote this poem a few months ago, and just today published it on my poetry blog (which is now called “songs from the refinery”).
As I look back on my mistakes
And feel remorse, please give me grace
To turn from these sins and repent
And not repeat such base events
But leave them all behind, and see
That life is better when I’m free
From thoughts and deeds that slow me down
Since rather quickly I must run.
To win this race, I must move toward
Christ, my Savior—ever forward.
