Grace

Am I imprudent to request
To fall on knees
Until they bleed
Is it too much
To see me blessed
To give me succour
In my need?

I am unworthy it is true
But worth will fall
And so will shame
I am forsaken
Yet I rise
To take my course
To take the blame

As most before I fall and cry
In greatest need
Is truest face
I am but nothing
Broken pride
But this is when
I most need grace

But this is when
I most need grace

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
