TITLE: He Wrote His Name

I stood alone in a blank white room

In the center rose a column with a narrow slit

An uneasy feeling of sadness and grief did loom

Peaking out of that small slit was a paper corner

I tugged on that tiny paper so it grew

Upon the paper was written every sin of mine

Things I was not so proud of old and new

At last I reached the end

Exhausted and tired I read the last line

All that was there was the letter “X”

It was a contract I did not want to sign

I knew the end had come

Trying to break free I started to tear

I could not rip the paper

Beginning to cry I yelled, “This is not fair!”

Though I knew it was my doing

I gave up in sorrow and dropped to the ground

“Let me have that” said a voice from behind

It was the Lord’s voice, a beautiful sound

“This is not your debt” I replied

He answered with a smile and took the contract from me

He wrote his name beside that “X”

He took the blame for my sin, you see

I was overcome with joy and sadness

He had paid my debt, I was free

Great job!

Loved the title, and the story told in rhyme.

Work a bit on finding a more consistent meter in your poems--it will give them better flow and make them easier for your readers.

I really appreciated your approach to this week's topic.

I liked this poem. Little awkeward in a few places, but still good reading.
