Confession

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.

It has been eighteen years since my last confession.

 

My hands are trembling

 

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.

In these last eighteen years, I have failed.

 

My eyes strain to see in the dark.

 

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.

I am a compulsive liar.

 

I feel my stomach churn my breakfast.

 

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.

I haven’t been to mass since I was eight.

 

My heart races.

 

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.            

I haven’t seen my mother in years.

 

My eyes are heavy.

 

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.

I wish ill on others.

 

I start to cry.

 

‘Say a decade of the rosary.’

 

I leave the church,

And I never return.
