Come Clean

God (Inspired by)

When I’m left with the past

behind me in disarray,

all I can do is confess

and clean up the mess.

I’m picking up the pieces-

the memories, the regrets-

and making my thoughts

free of any impediments.

I don’t know what to keep

or what to throw away,

emptying the compartments

in my mind that were filthy.

I pack up my doubts, my fears-

anything to make my heart pure

anything that keeps me from

coming clean before You.
