In Jest

Where does it all end
Starting quite by accident
A word said in jest

Tone changing intent
Hurt washing over her heart
Flushed cheeks flooded with tears

Rushing to hold her
Pleading for forgiveness
Eyes fear betrayal

Words have been spoken
Water goes beyond the bridge
Is this where it ends

Shadows Cast

Trying to live out over what I’ve been
When the past keeps stepping on my tail
There’s no question of what I deserve
Or when my foot can lose the pail

But it’s the acceptance I must learn to bear
For the character of my long past
But Jesus is there who forgives and forgets
I’m thankful for because of my shadows cast
