English: Roadside verge near Guilt Cross Young...

       Sinless Guilt

He has lifted it all off me,
and I seek to release my guilt.
It is not just the goodness of the baby,
for we know that goodness of the babe.
We struggle more to see the sacrifice,
how he lifts off our guilt.
He dwells with us now;
Human, He overcomes all that burdens us.
Brother, He takes us as we are, and
Dams up our guilt.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
