The Tax Collector at the Temple

"O God, be merciful to me, a sinner!" (Lk. 18:13a)

I screwed up.
I cannot help but say that
the Pharisee is right about
me--corrupt, immoral, and
Great YHWH,
my Lord and my God,
have mercy on me!
Though I want to try, but
I can't look at you out of
shame for myself.
I prayed to You in a farther
distance than others
not because of being a
tax collector,
but of the practice of tax
I cannot just let this one pass.
I am willing to give up everything
just to alter my life.
