TITLE: My Heart to God

My heart to God I now expose
in prayer on this day's weary close

Pouring out its hurt and sorrow
seeking solace for tomorrow

To Him I ask for mighty strength
make my legs to stretch the length

Of this dark road I travel on
as I journey all alone

May I have Christ's swift protection
from evil's sinister reflection

May He stand close by my side
and spread His wings so I may hide

Revealing all the throbbing pain
giving God the breaking strain

Pleading for His mercy's grace
soul to soul--face to face

Confessing all my darkly sin
even that held deep within

Baring truths in my confessions
God will shoulder my transgressions

Begging for a Christ blood cleansing
pure white love my soul is sensing

Laying a shattered heart on the line
for Him to take and redesign

Exchanging bitter taste resentment
for a flavor so transcendent

Praying for a soulful peace
to please arrange this heart's release

Here I am my Dearest Lord
surrendering my perished sword

My heart to God I now expose
in prayer on this day's weary close

Your poem has a nice flow, it is easy to read and has a burden lifting message.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh so very beautiful. So powerful in its message, and so soothing to the soul.

I'm going to print it out and put it on my fridge! Loved it.

God bless~

This is a lovely and moving poem which expresses a personal handing-over to the Lord very well. Great work!

Loved the line 'Exchanging bitter taste resentment
for a flavor so transcendent.'

Loved the entire poem but did you mean to say 'darkly sin?'

It seemed odd on my tongue.
