100 Word Challenge: Peculiar


Velvet Verbosity – Peculiar

by Teresa (Tessa) Smeigh

Copyright January 2016 – 100 words

I have been called peculiar,

Because I have chosen to follow

In God’s footsteps of my own choice.

I have wandered in the desert

Of 40 years, due to my choice

To give up God for 40 years.

During this time God watched over me,

While also punishing me for my choice

Of morality and other sins.

I have asked for forgiveness for adultery

And coveting thy neighbors spouse for

18 years without much care to pain inflicted.

Jesus died for my sins and his.

He died for us so that we may live

Our lives without suffering such pain.
