Repentance (poem by me)

…regrets having done it,
…recognizes offense,
…remembers no glory,
…reports no poor excuse,
…renders no shift of blame,
…repairs what can be fixed,
…re-routes future action.

“Jesus answered them, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.’” –Luke 5:31-32
