Standing Condemned

On any given day
I don't truly live
In the freedom of
The risen Christ's grace
At any moment I
Willingly dismiss the
Resurrection news
What would a true grasp
Of the truth even look like
Grace, I am told, is the
Courage to accept acceptance
Yet, how can I accept myself
When I am busy judging others
Taking your inventory
It turns out
Is my own personal Golgotha

Your poem is SO true!! I know it, then I live it, then I wanna blame others, then I feel bad, then I get it, then I live it, then I wanna blame, then I feel bad......etc.
