Each step brings new lessons, so walk with caution and without haste.

Repentance At the Shore

“The heavens will not be filled with those who never made mistakes but with those who recognized that they were off course and who corrected their ways to get back in the light of gospel truth.”
― Dieter F. Uchtdorf

At sunset, my weary body rests on the ground.

Fingers stretched gripping sand.

Bronzed skin glistens under the citrus sun.

As the sun mingles with the horizon, anguish sets in.

Inhaling salty air into my lungs.

Distracts my eyes from trailing tears to my lips.

“I am sorry,” are three words I am too proud to say.

Apologies echo throughout my dreams until night turns into day.

Guilt, sorrow, fear and confusion I leave at the shore.

Sea foam washes my crown and I emerge pure.
