The Sound of Forgiveness

A submission for the Obsessive Writing Challenge — SIN:

The weight of it all.

The heaviness.

The guilt.

The consequences.

Unavoidable and yet–undeniable.


We step into the shallow water

only to drown in its depths.

And yet.

There is always,


the offer of forgiveness.

Washing the slate clean.

In heaven it must sound like





His nails.

First pounding, then scraping.

Scraping away the filth





chalky residue


A clean slate.

A fresh beginning.

A new day.

A new life.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!”  2 Corinthians 5:17
