Only One Choice

If I had made a different plan of life
If I circumvented all the strife
If I had chose another path to take
If my heart was never soft enough to break

If that fruit could have stayed upon the tree
If Eve had turned away from the serpent’s plea
Redemption is a word I would never know
And Jesus may not mean the same
As the one I’ve come to know

In every life that’s given to this Earth
A longing placed inside to know one’s worth
Transcends all other yearnings of the soul
Only Jesus is the hope that makes him whole

Jesus made a way on Calvary
A bloody sacrifice I’ll never have to see
A loving throne of mercy is His place
The only if that matters now
Is if you choose His grace

And should you choose to never make that choice
The only words forever may be your own voice

Asking

Is it the should haves
Could haves
Would haves in this world
That make up all the dis-ease of this world?

 

A day late, but I can’t manipulate the muse!  Day 6 poem of Napowrimo.net
