Maybe That’s Me

by lynnkennison

I want to be good

I know I should

so why am I not?


Doing things right

should feel nice,

why do I struggle?

Why do I fight?


I hear

there’s good in us all

Where does mine hide?

Why do I stumble?

Why do I fall

time after time?



I am

addicted to feeling

raised once more


Redemption reliant

Salvation dependent

Atonement compulsive

Impulsive redress

Persuading duress



that’s me
