One More Chance (w/audio)

 braking
Forgiveness,
is it something you say,
something you write,
something you do?”Giver”
“Given”
“Gifting”Something that lives in you?So many things are easy to say.
Easy to read.

The passive wait for the catalyst,
ride upon the wave,
of consensus.

Driving down the road multi-tasking,
tuning the radio,
adjusting the mirror,
cell phone rings,
not noticing the vehicle ahead braking hard.

Horrified in the instant of realization,
thoughts of running late for work,
the spat you had before you left home,
the last angry words exchanged,
reverberating…
in the slamming of a door!

family,
finances,
debts,
stress,
overwhelming.

Say things you didn’t really mean.

too proud…

too late…

to take it back?

In your haste forgot to buckle up,
body surging forward,
steering wheel pressed tightly against your sternum,
windshield so close,
eyes-wide-eyed-aghast.
face of a child,
staring back at you,
from the back,
of a family van.

If only…

This instant,
this now,
in freeze frame.
Look left,
look right,
check the rearview,
what options?
None
but
to attempt
to stop in time.

In a fraction of a second,
thoughts racing,
pondered unforgiveness,
flashing through your mind.
Playing out what you would say,
if given one more chance?
To tell someone you love them,
you forgive them,
Say your sorry,
please forgive me?
So horrified.
so sorry…

One more chance to accept the gift,
of Salvation.

One more chance?
(brakes screeching)

One more chance?
(smell of rubber burning)

One more chance?
(coil, leaf springs groaning)

One more chance?

coffee spilling, papers flying, front bumper dipping, brakelights blaring, heart pounding, pulse quickening…stars colliding, universe exploding, overloading, how many cries in a nano second can scream…
from out of one mind!!

JUST BARELY…
STOPPED…
IN TIME.
Today…
just
“now”
in the…“now
that never passes away”you experienced…”KAIROS TIME…”
(moment of truth)

…the hard way!
in the way shown to me,
the only way known to me,
to illustrate how…

to enter
into…

excellent days

an excellent way

to EMBRACE that one more chance:)

(please forgive me for the harrowing ride.)
