His Image--By Marc Livanos--United States

His Image

Forgive my transgressions,
for my sins are against You.

In realizing my sins,
I sense Your pain.

Teach me kindness
to cleanse my heart.

In learning compassion,
I find inner peace.

Fill me with truth
to become genuine.

In being unpretentious,
I walk with You.

  1. Great poem is "His Image" Marc,
    Thanks for sharing these tremendous words of truth.
    I love the way this is expressed.

  2. Dear Mark,
    This is so well-done.
    Thank you,

  3. Oh, the pain of existence when we realise our shortcomings in the eyes of God, together with our deep longing to change. A heartfelt poem.
