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

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

Protection for an unguarded heart
that’s never learned how to heal.


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