LIFE AS A POEM

did terrible things in my life
through anger bad choices & ignorance
chose to hurt o yes it’s a fact
worst of all it became enjoyable
’tis a struggle returning from the edge
did terrible things in my life
abused my body & tortured my soul
broke hearts & one was my own
deliberate bad choices in my life
’tis a struggle to begin once more
again & again & again
holding back tears that cannot redeem
the terrible things done in this life
no balm from gilead for me
no blue rose of forgetfulness
’tis a struggle to forget
forgiveness is not ours
sometimes it takes a lifetime
for peace of mind & the wellspring of love
& the wisdom to know it is you and you alone
whose choices brought you here into your life
so very late into your life
yet not too late to awaken the joy of life
from walking in your shoes
from seeing through your eyes
from feeling all your body felt
the emotions & the pain & thoughts shoot though us
like atoms though the universe to find
that we each share minutes of our lives
& we come to discover we are one in life
