The Rain Comes to Wash

Updated on April 6, 2015

The rain comes to wash away the hidden sins

Kept deep inside so that no man can see

It is guilt consumed by darkness

Locked inside the box called the soul

Open the box at the first sound of thunder

Let the hidden darkness be carried by

Torrents of water as the skies open

And the rain pours from heaven

A pounding tempest created to free

The tortured ones that dwell

In secret prisons created by their own hands

Come, O Great Storm, Come

Wash away all that makes your children unclean

For it is more than we can bear

Refresh us, heal us, make us whole

White and pure like we were before birth

Before we lived and walked this earth

Before we fell from grace

And hid our faces from you.

      I love the pace and flow of this poem. The message, of course, is wonderful, but you have written it in such a way that it takes on a life of its own. Well done.
