Enigma to some
yet known to none.
Hedging the risks
playing it safe,
The book, firmly closed
lay gathering dust,
Alone and falling apart
on the shelf.

A chapter on weakness,
another on fear,
Vulnerability,
guilt and shame.
Anger and bitterness
came in succession,
The final stages
yet to be penned.

The owner was kind
and marked by compassion,
He bought it with riches
too great to be known,
Yet fear and distrust
that marred the pages,
Rendered it fragile
and useless to him.

Then one night he took
and opened the book,
Tender and patient
with utmost of care.
In loving compassion
he blotted the pages,
Tore out some chapters
and wrote them anew.

He gave them the titles of
Faith, Hope and Love,
Words from his pen
flowed fully and free.
Others left blank he marked
Faithfulness, Fruitfulness,
Holiness, Patience,
Obedience and Peace.

The footnote said,
I have known shame and rejection,
Betrayal and hurt,
was forsaken by all.
Let go and let God,
by His Spirit he'll fill you,
Your future and all
yield entirely to Him.

He cares,
His compassions
are new ever morning.
His mercies, abundant
forever endure,
He loves with a love
beyond all human measure,
Faithful and limitless
tender and pure.

I think it is lovely and flows nicely. I think the commas are just fine now. This is a beautiful piece.
