1.
 
Absolution
Breathes in guilt’s shame,
Consuming it, changing it,
Determining a new path,
Eager to begin again.
 
2.
 
Forgive me my trespasses, Father,
Grant me peace.
Hear my plea, oh Lord-
Incantations to a deity,
Judge and jury to spiritual infractions.
Karma is a bitch they say;
Lead us not into temptation.
 
3.
 
Melodramatic mockery to
Negotiate the ransom for
One’s immortal soul.
Pacify the gods,
Qualify the conditions;
Ramifications could be
Severe.
 
4.
 
Transformation of the soul
Unaccustomed to discipline,
Vague ideas of truth and morality.
Wander alone in a
Xenophobic condition,
Yearning for absolution, looking for
Zion’s forgiveness.
