To Atone

Written By: Damien Knight


In the dark I sit alone

praying that I might atone

for the sins that are my own

a raging fire in my home

that carries my soul

a light gone is the toll

and I cannot be whole

with this gaping hole

so I plead to the divines

asking to bide my time

or to just rewind

but I am guilty they find

and so I must pay full price

for all my misdeeds and lies

I don’t get second tries

no forgiveness of my crimes
