Like flesh-eating bacteria,
ravishes my mind,
devours my soul,
cannibalizes my humanness.
Malignant memories of lies and deceit
rob a future of inner peace.
Victims of my selfishness stalk my dreams
as they cry and plead for mercy.
Confession only brings so much relief
as I plead no contest to my darkest deeds.
I am a dead woman walking
condemning myself as the clock ticks.
Jury, judge, executioner,
I sentence myself to the electric chair of unforgiveness.
I choose to ask for forgiveness.
I choose to forgive myself.
I choose to make amends.
I choose to let go of guilt.
I choose a second chance.
Melissa writes about the God and human connection and condition.
