Today, as I write this, is Good Friday. For Christians, it is a time to refelect as we remember the death of Jesus as payment for our sins.
I did my own reflecting (mostly in relation to what I have been through professionally and how I kept thinking about it personally, as reflected in my last two TP poems) and while I have no idea what came over me, I just opened my text editor and started typing my heartfelt prayer. I share my prayer here as an addition to TP literature. There may be a few errors, but I leave the whole thing unedited so as not to ruin the Heart that I put into it
