What's The Excuse?

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

Before and evermore I salute you.
You know beyond a shadow of doubt that I'm worth something.

Then why is that so difficult for me to believe?
Will I ever realize my worth, find self worth?

Why do I have to be reminded that I am sin?
What is needed to be resolved?

Ah yes, the good part is I'm redeemed.
Why am I angry with that?

Probably because I can’t redeem myself.
So, if I'm worth redemption then I'm worthy, right?

You visit me in my mind and wander with me.
You become joined with me as I reminisce.

You heal me with your wisdom.
You comfort me with your compassion.

Tell me what is it needing to be released?
Ponder how much you care.

Send me back inside my mind.
It’s no wonder I ask to forget.

Is there room for anonymity in there?
How well do you really know me?

Tell me if I can help myself.
Between these ears is receptive.

I’m listening again.
Bring it on, challenge me.

Spill the words until they overflow.
I've craved their guidance.

I need a comeback.
Come with me as I will challenge you.

Pennies are for finding.
What have you in offering?
