For Redemption

Mercy is an option-
unredeeming in
my attire of pain.

Lashed by bitter
storms of accusations
my honesty is
poor protection.

My armour
I thought-
never knowing
it would show
my Achilles Heel.

Opening myself
in all my
in all my
lack of beauty-
in all that
I have ever been-

My honesty
is my undoing.
(Hasn't it always been?)

Mercy is an option.
Not one I'd choose

I'll wait.
And Hope.

Because I know
it's my honesty
that will stand

When the demons
of doubt
are vanquished.

As they must be.
As they will be.

Though pain be its gift,
Love never fails.
