Behind stone walls,
Silent dark crypt,
Fermenting shame,
Addiction swallows time,
Joy recalled,
A different life,
Once lived outside,
In vanquished memory,
None could love me,
If they knew me,
If they saw me,
Husk of humanity,
These lies, shackles,
Obstructing hope,
Choose truth, choose life,
Loose the key in your mouth,
Confess defeats,
Reveal shame,
Die to yourself,
Accept resurrection,
Your loved, wanted,
Known, sought for, missed,
Run towards deliverance

Psalm 51:10 and 12

Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
