He wore a cross around his neck
above his tats in prison blue,
skin art of death and violence,
and similar tattoos.

His eyes were mean and evil,
and his heart was cold as snow,
he had a bad complexion,
that matched his blackened soul.

When he smiled his missing teeth
looked like the gates of hell,
and if he had a lick of good,
it was pretty hard to tell.

But now he was a free man;
by law he’d done his time,
he couldn’t get early parole;
ten years for every crime.

But, still, he wears that cross,
and it makes me wonder why,
and I think of our dear Savior,
and I almost start to cry.

He died upon that cross
to save us from our sins,
and I wonder if He meant
to include the likes of him.

All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win the world is for enough good men to do nothing...Edmund Burke

I have pondered this, and I say, Jesus died for all our sins, from the lowest to the cardinal ones. The law does not wash away your sins, only HE and only HE can do so.
