Seeking Absolution [Reblog]

Welcome to my Random Word Prompt, Gypsie!! This is such an emotional and important use of the word absolution. It’s raw. The world needs to read these words of struggle.
xoxo, E.M.

Gypsie’s Wonderful World of Words

By (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to prompt provided by
E.M.’s Random Word Prompt #104

Seeking absolution from crimes
I’ve not committed
Yet crimes levied against me
by the naive and misinformed.

Misrepresented.

Seeking absolution from this disease that has me in its clutches, But one that I did not ask for not now and not ever.

Punishment.

Seeking absolution from heartache
sorrow, grief, anger, and despair
Protection for an unguarded heart
that’s never learned how to heal.

Redemption.

Seeking absolution for the innocent,the troubled, oppressed and wounded. For those serving and yet to serve and those brave souls who have fallen.

Absolution.

Shattered Heart: Darkness Within

Image Credit: Pinterest Her version of love was a depiction of a mushy romance novel... Except in their story, her heart crystallized, like jasper. It had shattered inside of her, and it became broken from trauma. Her love was wasted because she was not a hostess to his scandalous ways. She moved to lyrics inside …
