Sin so invaded my life
that it bonded to my members,
to know where I ended
and sin began,
an impossible task.

Many live this way.
The threat of painful cleansing
is too much to bear
and so they coexist with evil’s infection,
unwilling to submit to the cure.

But I presented myself to Him
for the full treatment.
I ask, “will this hurt?”
“Yes,” came the reply.
“It will feel like death.”

“But then, sir, why do it?”

“Because my son,
it is only on the far side of death
where real life is found.”
