Life Or Death

Does your good
  outweigh the bad

Is the balance
  happy or sad

Is your intention
  right or wrong

Does your prayer
  turn into song

Does the blame
  weigh down your heart

Can your light
  outshine the dark

Can the joy
  exceed the pain

Does one word
  your soul reclaim

Will His grace
  forgive your sins

Will new life or death
  —begin

(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2018)
