Final Prayer

just a prayer in which a person finds God and peace in their own heart

As I lay bleeding on the floor,

I give myself one final chance for forgiveness

My eyes closed,

Tears running down my face,

I pray.

“I’m sorry for all I’ve don’t,

My stubbornness, my anger, my fear

I know I’ve always defied any who crossed my path,

Ignored the signs,

Did what I knew was wrong.

I know I don’t deserve your love or acceptance

But I’ll die happy knowing that I’ve at least apologized.

God, I love you and I’m sorry for all I’ve done.”

As I whisper my final ‘Amen,”

A sense of peace envelopes me and

I sigh for the last time.

The End
