A Tear

If all it took were a tear or two

(no matter how bloody)

I’d be redeemed

If all it took were a razor across a wrist

I’d find peace at last

But it takes more

Lots more

Than tears, razors, glass shards

or evisceration

To redeem a soul

I don't believe a soul needs to be redeemed. We carry both within us, within our soul, the capacity for both good and evil. The capacity that we have to do evil exists because it gives us the chance to choose. And no, we don't always choose so good but we do learn.

We are all of us, works in progress Jonas.

And I don't believe you need redemption. I "feel" no evil.

Despite the kind commentary, I continue to seek redemption.
