A poem about dealing with past sins
|I’m hanging by a thread of endless self-destruction,
My inner panic rises like a endless interruption
All my haunting feelings of a painful darkened past
These are all the memories I know will ever last.
I filled my life with sins and unrelenting pain
My guilt has taken over and eating at my brain.
Living with my guilt is all I really know
Grabbing at my conscience and never lets me go.
Life's been hard and cruel living with my shame,
I’m living with my secrets and my unrelenting pain.
Living in the shadows on the darker side of life
I walk without a conscience and always pack a knife.
I’m paying for my sins and all my life's mistakes
I’m trying to do it better, no matter what it takes.
If I traveled back in time to start all over again
I would make my moral conscience truly be my friend.
