SINS

Forgive me father for I have sinned
Go on my child
It has been 8 years since my last confession
I have sinned in various ways
Various forms
I have lied
Cheated
Been unfaithful
I have killed
Destroyed
Plundered
Cast spells
Shown the evil eye
Cursed
Fornicated
Converted another man
Spoken against the church
Blasphemed
I have an unforgiving heart
I have struck peoples hearts with swords
Spoken death
Murdered in broad daylight
In doing all this
I have blackened my soul
Can I be forgiven?
Will the Lord God forgive me?
Will the people I have offended forgive me?
I will do penance
The duration I ask
For a lifetime
If I must cleanse my soul
But first I must partake of the blood in my gold rimmed cup.

QUESTIONS


How did I lose you?
Where did I go wrong?
Did I overlook something?
Did I see things and ignore?
Did I not talk enough?
Was I too vocal?
Was I not vocal enough?
I felt the under currents
I knew there were messages
In the early morning
In the late night
I felt the chills and the fears
As I talked to you
I saw your smile
And I felt the pain
Was I so in love?
Was I so happy?
Did I not put my foot down?
Did I not stand my ground?
Did I give you reason to leave?
Was I so into the fight?
That you saw opportunity?
Did I play into your hands?
Was I too honest?
Was my trust in you so deep that you began not to trust me?
Did I not listen to you?
Did I not talk much?
I have so many questions
What did I do wrong to deserve this?
I do not understand
I may not understand
I gave you my heart,
I gave you my soul
I gave you my body
I gave you my life
Was that not enough?
Now,
You are hostile
Sometimes so mean
Then
You turn around and do the opposite
The excuses you give
This decision is yours
It cannot be changed
You don’t want to change it
I will let you go
I will be difficult at first
But I will manage
I need to rest now
Go in peace
We have reached the point of no return

WHAT WE SEE?

What do you see?
You see the stars
The moon
The trees
The sun
The stars
People all around
The flowers
The vegetation
The walkways
The landscape

What do I see?
I see you
In you I see
The sun
The moon
The stars
The rain
Your heart
Your soul
In you
I see me
