"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

~Aristotle


 

I searched my soul and found it in need

For, I too often do not show love in commitment or deed

I am too quick to anger. That’s another problem I see

And I am slow to say, “I forgive” when someone offends me

I try to be perfect just as my Lord Jesus is faultless

But when I examine my soul if find it riddled with weakness

Oh Lord, I have sinned against you often and not followed your ways

Too often I have allowed my addictions and fixations

Lead me astray

Father, although I am lacking and showered in weakness

My prayer is a thankful one for I know your forgiveness

Amen! God watches over us because He is reminded, we are just dust! Good poem. Thank you!
Reviewed by John Domino 8/11/2010
A great sincere poem. Forgiveness is hard but the leftover anger management baggage is even harder to lug around. These days I like to lighten up.

Blessings,

John Michael Domino
