Jesus!/NaPoWriMo Day 7

image

Oh, how I love Jesus!
He took away my sins,
Refilling me with purist joy.

Once filled with sensuous joy,
erased by my risen Jesus,
who bleached white my bloody sins.

Shameful days of selfish sins,
giving only passing, empty joy,
Soul now filled with Jesus.

Jesus washed my sins away, filling my soulful days with true, eternal joy.

Today’s challenge was to write a Tritina poem. A Tritina poem has three line stanzas ¬†with the final word of each line being one of three words in an ABC, CAB, BCA form with a final concluding line including all three words. My three words were, obviously, joy, Jesus, and sins.
