Relief From Burdens And Grievings
by Peter Menkin www.petermenkin.com
Feb 21, 2001

Sin is awareness that forgiveness offers the covetous,
and a long list of human frailties more,
too numerous to name
relief from burden and grievings of the soul.

What to do with sins not in conscious.

Do not fret, listen to your heart; be still and know that
I am God. Live with sorrow, embrace joy, allow
acceptance of the human, eschew evil.
Know failure; willingly embrace humility. Tears.
Live life a friend said. Yes!

Garden variety, thorns, common knowledge,
blindnesses, bring my misgivings to purity --
May I grieve You not Lord --

You are good. Yet I do.
Hear my confession.
