Familiar enemy, at my door
Met before

Recognized, subtle smile
Been awhile

Better judgment, still unsure
Open door

Open heart, reach within
Win

Open mouth, take to flight
Fight

Felt uneasy, nonetheless
Bless

Got insulted, not my style
Second mile

Battle won, by His grace
Face

All within, all without
Doubt

Witness birth, witness death
Breath

Given life, have no choice
Voice

Came to life, turned the corner
Mourner

Knock, knock, didnít know
Colors show

Shouldíve known, not the same
Name

Then I saw, could this be
Me

Carnal calling, deep within
Sin

Shameful new, turn away
Pray

I confess, truth I say
Astray

Lord, forgive, I must learn
Discern

Enemy by surprise
Eyes

Help me see, let me live
Give

Eternal life, Godís the one
Son

Through His grace, I receive
Believe

On Him, no more shame
Came

Price paid, save the lost
Cost

Ever more, in His sight
Light

This was a very different type of poem. I liked it. Unusual choice of positioning, but it worked!

I read it three times, and liked it more each time.

Great job- God Bless~

Took a couple times to read through this, but it's all there: the shame, the guilt, the victory. You've got quite a rhyme scheme. Very interesting.

Wow this is such a beautiful, yet painful poem. It's so deep and could mean so many different things to different people. Outstanding poem!
