Lent

I have given up the angry God
and the God who tests me
I admit I never really believed in that one anyway
I give up the God who 
weighs the product of my life
and then distributes the just amount of love
I give up guilt this season
it’s the hardest thing I have ever had to give up
perhaps guilt is my drug
perhaps I have wanted guilt
it has certainly has had a hold me
and led me down many a path
I would have liked not to have taken
I   choose, this Lent, instead
to live open armed 
in invitation to relationship
with the God who loves me
just as I am
