Wretched Sheep

I'm a wretch
riddled with sin
spilling over from within

and I am hollow
emptied of me
devoid of hope, unable to breathe

I'm a liar
desperate for love
though I'm showered from above

and I'm a sheep
in love with a Shepherd
while dancing with a leopard

and I feel death
envelope me
when I forget that I am free

Rachel, I read what you posted in Poetic Asides. Now is the time to lean on a strength greater than your own. Know that you and yours are surrounded in prayers.
