Salvation Cycle

Yesterday it seemed to end:
you had the chance to do it well
but chose instead the lesser turn
saying nothing at that point
inactive as to disappoint
and lose yourself to unconcern.

Today it all begins - and then
another chance to make it good
all within a simple choice
be it words within your voice
or doing what you know you should
to rediscover Heaven's way.

Tomorrow it will start again:
potential futures to be found
decisions yet to take effect
through any action or neglect,
forgiveness, love, and faith unbound
recovering what strays away.
