The Narrow Gate 150 150 Chara Donahue

I change the way I once did live, I turn
around. To love, to give, a life of gold
transcend, now shift, let truth prevail. Behold
a life today unveiled. Anew, I yearn
to shine. To blind the world, by light reborn.
I broke to joy that fought with might. So life
I found, that bleak, vast night. Fair tears of strife
I leave behind. My plight now starts untorn.

Unique and made for God alone. I cry
my path by grace be shown. Forgive
the lust, the lies, the sick mistakes I made.
I gaze upon the cross; my debt is paid.
In awe I bring a sacrifice. To live
I leave behind my vice. The flesh can die.
