true confession

do not let us
o Lord
stop too near the surface
in our confession

for if we do
we never really
get to the source
of our problem

we merely chop the weeds
off at the surface
only to see them
grow right back again
instead of pulling them
up by the roots

for apart from you
we don’t really even
know what to confess
we deal only with symptoms
rather than the disease

so show us
o Lord
what we really need to see
and give us the courage
to confess it
so that we might be free
