If you’ll help me
I promise to try
to trust you enough
to believe
to really believe
in your wild and radical love
that it might even
be for me
in a very real way
and to let you hold
this sin of mine.
The one I like to carry
because I think I deserve its weight
its punishing load
should be forever shaking my arms
should
be.

But I love to tell
your story,
I love to tell
others
how blessed
and forgiven
and loved
they are.
Because of how ridiculously wonderful
you are.

So if you’ll help me
I promise to try
to trust and believe
you can really be
that wonderful
for me
too.

AMEN.
