Guilted not Gilded

I fear the guilt
More than the sin
I deny
The stabs of shame
My heart seeks peace
Free from hurt
The struggle
I disdain
But you, O Lord
Allow the punch
Of my choice
To land its blow
For you seek to train
And guide my soul
To respond
To my heartfelt woe
Accept the conviction
That shows the truth
So in the Spirit
Shame is destroyed
For without the pain
I am held fast
To the guilt
I so long to avoid
