Transformation

I’ve had a change of lifestyle

Through the last 40 years
I’ve walked through hills and valleys

I’ve shed a lot of tears

My life before was earthly
Filled with drugs and drink
My mind was in the gutter
My tongue spewed only stink
But then I met my Savior
He washed my sins away
He’s changed my life completely
Now mercy fills my days
There’s still vestigial sins
That haunt my tongue and mind
Every day I ask the Lord
To free me from my pride
For pride us what will keep me
From giving all to Him
When I control this heart of mine

  1. To be honest, I’m not religious. But your poem is beautiful and I agree that pride is something that often keeps people trapped in negative situations. Thank you for sharing your truth.
