Incremental Poetry ~ 22 Lines

By Design

I’ve no remorse
for the choices made
that ran my life aground:
they were led by Your design.

Oh, my Lord,
You are the source
of my strength. I’m stayed
upon Your Rock profound,
folded in Your love divine.

Like pawns
on the board,
some moves we force
until we are played,
left lying in a mound—
alone, broken, in decline.

New
day dawns,
in accord
with life’s due course—
new hope now conveyed,
and full forgiveness found,
for I’m Yours, and You are mine.
