The Weight Of Sin

Here's a poem I wrote while living in Hollywood, Ca at 2018 N. Highland Ave. God had been showing me my sins so clearly from my study of the Bible and meditations on godly matters. I'm not an editor and this needs some serious editing so anybody wants to correct the punctuation that would be greatly appreciated. The words do not all fit across the line of this page as most of them did on my binder paper.

Sometimes I feel sin sinking me down low
down down into hell there there I must go
This awful weight I can not shake no matter what I do
the sinful food on Satan's plate I dare not eat but spew.
A wretched body of death and dung fit naught but for worms
why do you torment me so much with all your sinful squirms?

Thou paradest thy pride like a drill instructor's stride
what race are you running pray tell
the bell is tolling for thee O cunning canst thou escape God's hell?

Confusion of face is what I know as
Daniel confessed in his soul
not my works but God's sovereign grace
can ever make me whole
and now the wind witch whispers
a cheap child's verse

"sticks and stones may break my bones
but names will never hurt me."
A good name no but wicked the foe
who deceives with such a lie!
And sees not the curse in sin that is worse
that bad names in hell must cry.
