Unlock the Door of My Heart
        Jesus said,
            "Your sins are forgiven;
                rise and walk."
        Forgiveness is an unlocked door
            to walk through
                into a wide-whoopee-open world.
        Forgiveness is a seed
            to water with new dreams and wild risks
                until it bears unexpected fruit.
        Forgiveness is an enemy-friend
            to be born out of,
                a quietness beneath the clamor.
        Forgiveness is a flower to smell,
            a wind at my back,
                a gull to scream with,
            a pain to laugh beneath,
                a burden that carries me.
        It is becoming We
                becoming Yours.
        Forgiveness is a song to sing.
            O Lord, unlock the door of my heart.
