A Guilty God by Shae O’Brien

It was long long ago
In the scriptures of old
When my mother’s mother
Did not do what was told
But with curiosity You gave her
When in Your image You did mold

Do You ever seek forgiveness from me?

They were Your chosen people
With no church and no steeple
When they strayed from your ways
As imperfect ones will
So You washed them away
With Your wrath in Your will

Do You ever seek forgiveness from me?

We are taught that Your Son
Was the oh Holy One
That You gave as an offering
For redemption and love
Or was it Yours that You sought
When You sent Him from above

Do You ever seek forgiveness from me?

  1. Great poetry always takes me 4 or 5 reads before the pearls shine. Love this. I feel exposed to my soul and yet somehow forgiven for my doubt of faith and my convictions. Beautiful . Thank you.
