“Redemption”

Poem 26 in the ProCrasstheNation Poemvember Poetry Project is inspired by my Cousin Ellen. Thank you for offering up this concept. Everyone needs a little redemption in their lives from time to time.

“Redemption”

 

Redemption is elusive,

when sought at every turn.

It comes when least expected,

the moment it is earned.

 

The value of redemption,

is that it makes you whole again.

It comes without exemption,

and allows you to amend.

 

The minute you stop seeking,

redemption will appear.

Around the corner, it comes sneaking,

when you’re deepest in despair.

 

The road to coming back,

requires just one step.

Take the tender track,

it requires little prep.

 

Embrace the awkward movement,

and soon you will arrive,

at a place of much improvement,

to start anew and thrive.
