A free verse poem done for the prompt "Life Is What You Make Of It."
Digital image of a dream of Christ


I dreamed I was upon a cross
Surrounded by my sins.
In desperation cried I out
“Will no one help me, please
I am nearly drowning in them.”

A voice came then and whispered to me
“ONE has already done this for you
You hang here now because you feel
As if somehow you need to.

You may come done anytime, you
Have the strength to change your life.
For life is what you make of it, and you
My son, have made little of this precious gift.

But choose to and life
Can start again, and these
Sins will all be swept away
Like they had never been.”

Said I then, “who is it
Could promise so marvelous
A thing, and why would
One so great, do so
Great a thing, for me?”

The voice said, “and
Pardon is mine alone to give.
And it is given freely
To all who seek it of me.”

With that I woke, and
Prayed this simple prayer:

“Thank you FATHER,
Not only for this gift of life,
But for opening my eyes,
My heart, and soul - this night!"
