Sometimes the burdens of past and present never seem to leave us...

My Penance

 

This is my burden

my cross to bear.

my burden

to bruise

and cut my shoulders.

my guilt and shame

crushing my spirit

shattering my soul

splitting

my heart asunder. 

so I drown

in poisen tears,

drops of acid 

pooling at my feet

taking skin

off my sole.

leaving me unable to walk forward.

so,

I slide backwards

leaving red lines

that my sins

never

stop

following.
