Tell Me Again

When the words of he who made me blind
Come back to punish me again,
I feel myself fall deeper in sorrow,
A familiar, but unwelcome friend.

The lies Ive heard for too many years
I thought were conquered and gone.
But the evil one who brings me down,
Will repeat the words like a song.

He reminds me of my mistakes and guilt,
And makes me re-live my past.
He distorts the image I see in the mirror,
Until all I see is shattered glass.

Just when I fear Ive reached the end
A familiar whisper is spoken.
My child, Im here, just as before,
When at first your heart was broken.

Ive told you before and Ill tell you again
The day you called My Name,
I covered your heart and soul with My blood
And removed your guilt and shame.

The enemy will always be seeking a soul
That is weary and weak and lost.
But I sealed you as Mine, and Ill say it again,
Your sins, into the depths are tossed.

Weep no more for the day is new!
Its this song I want you to sing.
Move on, go forward, share in My love,
For My child, again, youre redeemed.

This is so beautiful. I love how you started out in a dark place but through faithfulness took the reader into the light.

The only red ink I have is to double check your quotation mark rules. If the same person is speaking at the end of the stanza or paragraph there are no end quotes only beginning quotes at the next stanza. And then, when the person is done speaking you put the end quote.

Your message is beautiful and it touched my heart and left me with a sense of hope and relief. I have no doubt that it will touch so many more hearts. You have a wonderful way with words.

I really like this poem. I like the partial rhyming, and the great message. It makes me think about my unsaved friends who I hope to share the love of Christ with. Nice job.

A compelling poem about how Satan tries to burden us with guilt and shame but God draws us into the light.

Reminds us how we need to share with others what God has done in and through our lives. He has freed us from our past and present by sending his son Jesus to save us.
