Hope in Reconciliation

I’m feeling a toxic burn
Eating away my mind, subsuming my soul
Kindling a bitter churn
Resentment toward the player of a role

Desperate to be a savior
To fill the inner chasm of despair and isolation
Grasping to savor
The love of another’s salvation

Judge and jury self-appointed
Weighed and measured me, deemed unworthy
Presented self-virtue anointed
Usurper of my loss by profligacy

Love and hope embattled
Tattered remains in transformative redemption
True love unrattled
Offers divine freedom of reconciliation
