True confessions

Trying to come to terms with the past

Counselling Session 1 ~ Tuesday, 15th December 2012

Reluctant to discuss my past

No hesitation moved on fast

To chat about the here and now

As searched my deeply furrowed brow

Remained worried all the time

Muddled thoughts; compulsive rhyme

Dearly needed to clear mind

But peace appeared undefined

Tears fell involuntarily

Regularly; momentarily

Often didn't recognise

Saltwater seeping from my eyes

Conscious of my anxious state

Impossible to relate

How I coped and roughly why

Would be preferable to die

Counselling Session 2 ~ 8th January 2013

Top heavy with hate; self-doubt

I warranted mental clout

Evil actions would ne'er admit

Own spawns I too had hit

Needed to be better mother

I was soon to discover

Temper flare often ignited

Violence learnt and requited

Ashamed of past violations

Expected future condemnations

I was looking for redemption

Without a hint of pretension

Please make no excuse for me

I inflicted misery

Reflected all my bitterness

On those who merited it much less

Counselling Session 3 ~ Tuesday, 15th January 2013

She treated me respectfully

Understood painful degree

Past events still resonated

Current ones were related

She gently probed with empathy

I hated any sympathy

Deserved of my punishment

Because of youthful devilment

But she made me reassess

All sins I chose to confess

And though I was a wild child

No excuse to be defiled

She said I'd right to be angry

And shortly I had to agree

No excuse but simple reply

To who and where and when and why

Re-examined rationally

Patiently explained to me

Was merely product of upbringing

I should be more self-forgiving

Sorry for Yesterday ~ January 2013

No excuses

Simply regret

For the nooses

That can't forget

And truly pray

That yesterday

I did not blight

With knots too tight
