A little look

Opens the sight,

Filled with wonders;

But minus the light.

A little touch

Senses arise,

Hearts are flushed;

But filled with lies.

A little crush

Emotions engage,

Arousal interests;

But ends in rage.

Oh, eyes so full!

Oh, touch so flushed!

Oh, crush so engaged!

Had I but turned.

Had I but listened.

Had I but stopped.

Too late to change?

A life to mend.

God waits with love,

My rope to end.

Repentance in full

My sins to cast;

All to give,

To him at last.

– James Jewell, Jr., 2010
