ONE DAY AT A RHYME
(2/21/14)


under the thumb
out of control

needing a god
to climb out
of this hole

saying
what the hell
I give it
to you

these
are my sins
that I wish
were not true

I share
each of them
with you
and a friend

hoping
for them all
very soon
to end

take them
take them
take them all
please

these
are the people
who suffered
my disease

I confess
my transgressions
and hope
for forgiveness

daily amends
will alleviate
such guiltiness

I must
quiet
my spirit
and look
upon high

living better
for others
until the day
that I die
