Oldest Of Sins

The oldest of sins
Cast the longest of shadows
Whether in fields
Or summer green meadows

So if you find yourself
Bound in chains today
Looking up or facing down
Hope for those chains to fade away

No shadows cast, be unbeaten
No sin be a total crime
Shine a light and it’s gone
You’ll be free in no time

Nothing now to hold you back
The chains glowing, ever fading
All sins now repentant
A miss of the mark, worth taking

A challenge of the mind
A road worth taking
To break the chains
With shadows ready for breaking

  1. This poem is a real revelation to me, and comes at a time when the message is very welcome. I love this Jen, and I find it a bit different than all the other poems you have composed. Different and very compelling as well as uplifting :)
