why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

—Cindy B. Stevens

sackcloth and ashes



Six lines from “sackcloth and ashes”:


repentance demands change
my belief?  it’s complicated
I own my sin
will the Jesus sacrifice blanket me?
forgiveness
will it matter how often I ask?
